Using SSL in GlassFish
By pelegri on Jan 21, 2006
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and its successor Trasport Layer Security (TLS) are cryptographic protocols that provide secure layer communication in the internet. The two are usually refered by the term SSL and are supported out-of-the-box by GlassFish.
Jagadesh's latest blog has a brief introduction to the basics of using SSL in GlassFish. Since the implementation is dependent on JSSE, Jagadesh also included a document with examples of handling certificates using JSSE Tools.
Another useful reference is Carol Zhang's article on Developing an SSL-Enabled WebApp with SJSAS 8.1. This is a fully developed article that goes into many details and includes example code. Check it out!
