hi,

I've a client program which accesses a https url.
I set the certificate password settings using system.setproperty() method.
If I run the program in a multithreaded environment, the server validates the certificate credentials only for the first time. that is, for the first thread.

Since I need to simulate a realtime scenario,
I need to make the server check the credentials for every thread. any idea on how to do that?

I used a wrapper using runtime class by invoking new jvm for every thread. but, I can't run large number of threads that way.

had to use jdk1.4 and hence couldn't use System.clearProperty to re-set the properties in every thread.

I tried setting some other certificate credentials for other thread, but server doesn't check second time, from the same jvm.
