Class EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory

java.lang.Object
  extended byfi.hut.tml.xsmiles.util.HTTPClient.ssl.EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory
All Implemented Interfaces:
org.apache.commons.httpclient.protocol.ProtocolSocketFactory, org.apache.commons.httpclient.protocol.SecureProtocolSocketFactory

public class EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory
extends java.lang.Object
implements org.apache.commons.httpclient.protocol.SecureProtocolSocketFactory

EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory can be used to creats SSL Sockets that accept self-signed certificates.

This socket factory SHOULD NOT be used for productive systems due to security reasons, unless it is a concious decision and you are perfectly aware of security implications of accepting self-signed certificates

Example of using custom protocol socket factory for a specific host:

     Protocol easyhttps = new Protocol("https", new EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory(), 443);

     HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
     client.getHostConfiguration().setHost("localhost", 443, easyhttps);
     // use relative url only
     GetMethod httpget = new GetMethod("/");
     client.executeMethod(httpget);
     

Example of using custom protocol socket factory per default instead of the standard one:

     Protocol easyhttps = new Protocol("https", new EasySSLProtocolSocketFactory(), 443);
     Protocol.registerProtocol("https", easyhttps);

     HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
     GetMethod httpget = new GetMethod("https://localhost/");
     client.executeMethod(httpget);

                                    org.apache.commons.httpclient.ConnectTimeoutException
Attempts to get a new socket connection to the given host within the given time limit.

To circumvent the limitations of older JREs that do not support connect timeout a controller thread is executed. The controller thread attempts to create a new socket within the given limit of time. If socket constructor does not return until the timeout expires, the controller terminates and throws an ConnectTimeoutException

Specified by:
createSocket in interface org.apache.commons.httpclient.protocol.ProtocolSocketFactory
Parameters:
host - the host name/IP
port - the port on the host
params - Http connection parameters
Returns:
Socket a new socket
Throws:
java.io.IOException - if an I/O error occurs while creating the socket
java.net.UnknownHostException - if the IP address of the host cannot be determined
org.apache.commons.httpclient.ConnectTimeoutException
