    Default SSL connection from the servlet to the server


    i want to establish an SSL connection within a servlet (Tomcat) to another JAVA server. The server has integrated the test.jks File as keystore and uses it well. In a small servlet I try an SSL connection to that server, the problem is to set the truststore on client side (in this case the servlet). I tried 2 ways to announce the truststore:

    System.setProperty("", context.getRealPath("WEB-INF/" + getKeystoreFileName()));
    System.setProperty(" rd", getKeypass());

    getKeystoreFileName() liefert einfach nur den Namen des Keystores/Truststore:
    so dass die erste property dann so lautet:


    and the other one:


    I always get the error message:

    "Connecting to ownserver via sslport (server123:3337): Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect"

    2. I tried to load the jks file dynamically:

    KeyStore trustStore = KeyStore.getInstance(KeyStore.getDefaultType());
    trustStore.load(new FileInputStream(ksName), ksPass.toCharArray());

    TrustManagerFactory tmf = TrustManagerFactory.getInstance(TrustManagerFactor y.getDefaultAlgorithm());

    // get the trust managers from the factory
    TrustManager[] trustManagers = tmf.getTrustManagers();
    SSLContext sslContext = SSLContext.getInstance("SSL");
    sslContext.init(null, trustManagers, null);
    SSLSocketFactory sslFact = sslContext.getSocketFactory();
    sslSocket = (SSLSocket) sslFact.createSocket();

    It should be noted that both exaples in a small client-test-main()-program works fine, the announce of the truststore in a servlet does not working (the central keystore cacerts is not avaiblabe for me).

    Do someone has an idea? Thanks for reading.
