I am given the task of writing a servlet that will accept requests through HTTPS. I am at a bit of a loss as to what to do. One part of the problem is configuring the server and the servlet engine to allow HTTPS requests. But what about the code? I cannot figure out what would be different in the code for checking a username and password. Any help is appreciated. Sanjay
dont believe that your servlet would have to implement anything different.. it would be a servlet that would reside on a SSL capable server. The SSL software would handle the https request/response (encoding/decoding). Your servlet would not need anything special.

Great! So that means I don't have to open up any SSL sockets or handle certificates or anything like that?! Whew! Thanks for the promptness! I love this board! Sanjay
