I have the following element in my DD inside <security-constraint>

<user-data-constraint>
<transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee>
</user-data-constraint>

I was expecting http to change to https. It does change to https but the page does not display. If i remove this element it starts working fine.

Do i need to do something else to make a secure transmission?
Thanks

Hello,

On which J2EE container you are trying it. Is the SSL is installed for the server ?

Thankx

Hello,

Yes, you need something extra to use SSL using tomcat. Some cetrificate from Third party need to be installed to turn up the SSL on. ( I heard that some vendor provide free testing certificates, but not sure)

The following link can help you,
