Subject [Bug 60597] Add ability to set cipher suites for websocket connections
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2017 23:49:03 GMT

--- Comment #5 from Michael Orr <> ---
Hi Christopher,

Thanks for the feedback.  I'm just following the example set by other
configuration entities in this area (e.g. the SSL_PROTOCOLS property). 

In general I'd much prefer the direct mutators approach as well.  In this case,
however, the intent is to provide additional configuration capabilities to the
generic javax.websocket.* API classes that were missing from that generic API.  

The choice for a user would be either to use these properties or to abandon the
javax.websocket.* classes and instead use Tomcat-specific implementations of
them (e.g. org.apache.tomcat.websocket.WsWebSocketContainer).  The latter would
make the user's code much less portable overall, so I think that using
properties here and sticking to the javax interfaces is the better approach.

Of course, the best thing would be if protocol/ciphers configurability were to
be added to the official java.websocket.* API spec, but I have no idea when
that's coming...
