isn't there anybody who has configured Tomcat5.0 for HTTPS? please help, i am in trouble as i have to complete my project and the Tomcat5.0 documentation is not sufficient as stated entries in documentation are not in the server.xml file.

There should be a commented out <Connector port=8443 (or443) entry in server.xml

Here is what worked for me

I found the book "Professional Apache Tomcat 5" to be extremely helpful for this and other configuration questions.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
