Hi

where can I find source codes to do SSL session for servlets  using URLHttpsConnection.

Presently I am using URLHttpConnection to access and return data in a servlet.


How can I get it SSL enabled.

If your using JSSE then it's all transparent. You just specify the (https) url you require and use URLConnection the same as you would for standard http.

URL secure = new URL("https://tlteo.com/my.html");
URLConnection conn = secure.openConnection();

yeap i know,, but I am using apache with tomcat, and I dont use mod_ssl.  I am trying to use jsse to create a SSL session.

Seems like the crucial part is the PrintWriter out PrintWriter out;
     
            res.setContentType("text/html");
            out = res.getWriter();

How can I link
 
socket.startHandshake();
         PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(
                      new BufferedWriter(
                      new OutputStreamWriter(
                           socket.getOutputStream())));

         SSLSocket socket =
          (SSLSocket)factory.createSocket(tunnel, host, port, true);

Are you trying to write SSL?
Sorry I thought you were trying to read SSL.
