Dear experts,

I am trying to build an application that gets OData from a OData website. to do this i have to use Client certificate authentication to access the data. I however don't know how to get this done and make a connection to the site. Does someone have an example for me?.

Hi Valeri,

Can you please explain me why I have to add this key to the keystore? I have installed the server certificate to my pc, is this enough or is it necessary to also add it to the keystore? because then i have to ask the system admin (cacerts access is denied in cmd)

Actually I have never used this type of authentication. I have used only base authentication. But I think you have to add it, because of this code. It looks like the certificates are loaded from there.

I have not yet got this far because of some issues with connectivity but thanks for your help. I am trying to use the Odata4j package but have to use a proxy and don't know how to do this in combination with the ODataConsumer.

THanks for your help!
