hi all,

im currently new to SSL. ive been reading some sites discussing SSL.
i like to ask if for example, i will not do the proxy configuration for SSL or tunnel,
instead use a jsp to redirect to an HTTPS url using post method.
my site is already HTTPS. is it ok, just to redirect , is security imposed on this
method?

thank you.

Using redirection is fine, since it results in an HTTPS connection. That's what the servlet container itself would do if you configured the web.xml file to require the use of HTTPS.
