I assume you mean actions.  They are defined in o.a.c.ActionCode, and
processed by somebody implementing o.a.c.ActionHook (both under the "coyote"
directory).  For the HTTP/1.1 connector, this is
o.a.c.http11.Http11Processor (under the "http11" directory).  The usual way
to fire them is to call o.a.c.Response.action (which is conventionally named
"coyoteResponse").  For the SSL action, the second parameter is the

This is mostly working, except that I couldn't find how to get the keySize
for PureTLS (so PureTLSSupport is currently returning null).

I'm not sure either, which is why I'm talking about it instead of doing it
:).  My guess would be o.a.c.tomcat4.CoyoteAdapter.postParseRequest.
However, the current Catalina code is doing it much much later.  I'm pretty
sure that you can't get the 3.3.x behavior of "only when asked for" without
a lot of changes in Catalina (this is more a reflection of spec changes
between 2.2 & 2.3 than design).
