How can I enable SSL on JBoss 5 on a Linux (Red Hat - Fedora 8) box?

What I've done so far is:

(1) Create a test keystore by doing this and then answering all the questions.

(2) Placed the newly generated server.keystore in $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/conf

(3) Make the following change in the server.xml in $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/jbossweb.sar to include this:



What more do I need to do to enable full SSL client authentication?

A lot of the web sites on Google state how to enable SSL for JBoss 3 - 4. I need a good tutorial for JBoss 5.

Happy programming,

James

JBoss AS 5 documentation is scattered across various wiki and forum posts. You can search these places or you can buy the JBoss In Action book by Peter Johnson which concentrates on various configurations in JBoss AS 5.

Thank you for all of your help...

Actually, I already did change that to (in $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/jbossweb.sar/server.xml):



The problem now is that when JBoss starts it logs this exception (during start-up) (but I am still able to view everything under http://localhost:8080/):



I do know that's there's more to be done to enable full SSL client authentication....
