Subject RE: Tomcat + SSL Certificates
Date Wed, 09 May 2001 19:39:04 GMT
I have been able to get Tomcat to support SSL in standalone mode just fine.
There is a very brief write-up of the procedure in the Tomcat documentation
and an example connector in the example web.xml file.  I was initially
concerned because the write-up is so short, but it turned out that following
the steps as outlined worked fine.  No long write-up was needed.  You do
need to download the security extensions from Sun but this is all covered in
the documentation.

As I understand it, tomcat by itself does not support any certificates. If
you want to use SSL then you need to integrate it with another webserver.

I user tomcat with apache-modssl and it works great.
