Hello I need to 1) get a csv file through an HTTPS connection and 2) echo the file back to ensure proper transmission. Where can I find sample code to do this? Or better yet... how do i do this...?

I'd been piecing together some code from reading some google posts.. here's what i have so far( I also downloaded JSSE from sun's site)-->



public void getDataOverSSL(){
try{
System.setProperty("java.protocol.handler.pkgs","com.sun.net.ssl.interal.www.protocol");
Security.addProvider(new com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider());

URL dataprovider = new URL("https://........");
URLConnection con = dataprovider.openConnection();
con.setDoInput(true);
con.setUseCaches(false);
BufferedReader buf = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(con.getInputStream()));
String line;
while((line = buf.readLine()) != null){


} // end of while loop
}// end of try block
catch(Exception e){
System.err.println("Exception in DataXferHttps.getDataOverSSL");
e.printStackTrace();
}

} // end of getDataOverSSL

What you're doing looks fine.

Why?  TCP/IP guarantees correct packet delivery afaik.

objects...

thanks for looking my post(code) over-

our client requested that the file be echoed back?  should I just explain to them that, "TCP/IP guarantees correct packet delivery afaik."


well... as soon as i get the link from the client i'm going to give my code a try-  If it doesn't work and i can't figure it out, i'll post again here.  If it works i'll award you the points for  your time.

Thanks again!

It would probably be worth discussing with them to determine their exact reasons for this. Personally I'd consider it unnecessary if the purpose is to confirm correct delivery. Maybe suggests sending a checksum if there are concerns. But in the end it's up to the client what they want.
