Hello JavaRanch,

While i am trying to post a request to a remote server i am receiving the SSLHandShake Error. I am using apache-commons HTTPClient and PostMethod classes to post the request.
As i tried for the first time while coding it worked well and good. But all of the sudden while testing its showing the error as mentioned.

Below is the code which i used to post


As my application is in testing phase, i got some exceptions while trying to connect to the remote server. After verifying the logs i came to know that the error is caused due to SSLHandshaking.
Below is the ErrorTrace.



As i have taken care of the socketConnectionTimouts and other connection issue, i want to know whether there is any point i am missing out in my code that caused this error.

Thanks in Advance...

While debugging a testing SSL issue: I have

Server A ----> https ----> Server B (the code on B is set up to run for 5 mins + display some logs)

a .If I wait until the end, every thing is fine.

b. If After 2 mins, I just shut down Server B and I got the same exception like yours, displayed.

So some where the SSL connection was dropped by B either it was re-started and/or completely shut down voluntarily or due to network issue.

Now, just run 10 times your POST and see what happen?

with or without

-Djavax.net.debug=ssl

OR

System.setProperty("javax.net.debug", "ssl");
