Hi Andre, thanks for your reply.

I tested this a bit more and did a write up of the problem for anyone who's interested

Obviously it wasn't a java issue not tomcat-related though.

have a way to invoke it.

Maybe something to add : as I understand your original description, this is about a webapp
(running "inside" of Tomcat) which establishes its own SSL connection to some other server.
In such a case, as far as I know Tomcat is not involved at all. It doesn't even know that
the webapp is doing that, and has no reason to be caching anything.

This being said, since both Tomcat and the webapp "run inside" the same JVM, there may be
things cached /by the JVM/.
My knowledge of these things is insufficient to know if such things cached by the JVM
could be shared between Tomcat and the webapp.
Intuitively however, I would tend to think that whatever in-memory structure/object is
used by Tomcat for its own SSL Connector(s), is probably distinct from the in-memory
structure/object used by this webapp to store information related to its own independent
