does anyone know a good link for configuring Tomcat with SSL?
If I implement Tomcat with Apache can I configure Apache so that some servlets are handled by Tomcat using SSL and some aren't?
Thanx

If you mean to use HTTPS, then the key thing to note is that HTTPS uses a different default port (443 If I recall correctly) to HTTP. It's fairly easy to configure Apache to put a different "virtual host" on each of these ports if you want to, but as for how you'd make sure that the requests are encrypted/decrypted correctly is beyond me. Perhaps someone else here has more information?

my understanding is that u can set up Apache to map access to some paths as secure and others as not secure. which is what I want to do. I haven't done it yet though.
Instead I got Resin and it was all too easy!!! nice one Resin!!

Hi,
We have a similar situation in our Project where a few pages are meant to be accessed via https only. We have configured https on iPlanet successfully but now we can access the whole application on that port over https. How will we restrict access only to these pages in iPlanet ?
( I don't have an option of switching web servers !!..:-) )
