SSL,Restful calls , java

  I have application that currently exposes some restful API's . I am able to access and retrieve information  via http using jersey.  Now , I enable HTTS  for the application by using the keytool command to generate the .jks and .csr file. . The application now run via HTTPS

What do I need to do on the client to make the rest call work using https ?. Do I have to import the certificate into my client keystore?

Thanks for your help

You don't need to. The browser should handled the ssl encryption theough the http URL.

If your client is a Java program, it needs to use HttpsUrlConnection instead of HttpUrlConnection. In any case, the former is a sub-class of the latter.

I am using Jersey to call the restAPI

String auth= new String(Base64.encode(JConstant.ID_PASS));
Client client = Client.create();
webResource = client.resource(JConstant.ROOTURL+"/issue/"+issueID);
response = webResource.header("Authorization", "Basic " + auth).type("application/json").accept("application/json").get(ClientResponse.class);

Open in new window

This is the error when I use Https:
com.sun.jersey.api.client.ClientHandlerException: No subject alternative names present

I copied the .cer file and import it in my java cacaerts but it did not help

As detailed in your other question, yes, importing the certificate is probably the best answer.
