    Post difference of HTTP vs HTTPS development

    I am new to HTTPS based web applications, and was still not sure how is it different to develop a HTTPS based web application then HTTP based web application.

    Do I really need to take care of somethings specially in case I am doing HTTPS web application development?

    I assume it should not be different from HTTP but still want to be sure if there are somethings specifically taken care while my application is going to be used over HTTPS.

    Any thoughts ?

    There's nothing different from a development point of view. Just make sure you don't hardcode the protocol anywhere (which would be bad practice anyway).

    If you need to check whether a request was made using HTTP or HTTPS, you can use the HttpServletRequest.isSecure() method.

    There is a sample web server in the sample code for 5.0 that has https as built in. That may provide addional direction. I did not know it was as simple as calling isSecure();
