HTTPUnit and SSL questions

Hi, there!

I am testing a SSL page with HTTP unit. I am not sure what kind of certificator we are using. But most probably from verisign.
But the does give following error:
java.io.EOFException: Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream.
Same codes is runnable against normally HTTP request.
My code is below:
 WebRequest request = new PostMethodWebRequest(firstPage);
WebResponse response = wc.getResponse(request);

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You are running into the problem that HttpUnit wants to deflate a gzipped page, while the zlib input stream doesn't work correctly (not your fault).
Here is another discussion about same problem:

http://www.arcknowledge.com/gmane.comp.web.httpunit.devel/2005-06/msg00039.html

it suggests to set to set the client property for accepting gzip to false:

ClientProperties.setAcceptGzip(boolean acceptGzip)

Another idea would be to catch the EOFException and just continue.
I hope it helps,
