Hi all

I created a midlet class to access web site using httpConnection. How can I use SSL with this j2me application. I don't have any idea about ssl. Can anybody explain how ssl works and how to use ssl with j2me applications to access a web site.

If the device you're targeting is MIDP 2.0, you can use an HttpsConnection exactly like an HttpConnection. If not, you might want to look at bouncycastle.org , and I found a link for implementing ssl in an embedded environment, which may or may not be useful: http://www.embedded.com/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=45400043
