Hi all.
I want to connect to a database but using a secure manner.
(to retrieve sensitive information).
does JDBC support a secure connection ?
can I use JSSE ?
I know a little about JSSE (to be more specific, I know only the secure
sockets).
any ideas or solutions to perform this functionality ?

Typically security in the data layer would be infrastructure security, rather than code-based security. i.e. an app server running on a properly administered server connecting over the LAN to a DB on a simmilarly properly administered machine. In which case implementing SSL/TLS is an unecessary overhead.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
