Redirect to https://

If you remember a couple months ago, you guys help me setup an SSL certificate on our web server. Now I need a little more help. All works fine when we type in https://blah.blah.blah but it just comes back with a blank page and says done when we use http://

How can I redirect anyone that uses http:// to automatically change to https://

Tomcat 5.0 (Catalina)

Thanks

I use a servlet filter for that. But if you're having a problem with what you did, maybe we should try to fix that up.

You can either do this programmatically with a filter, as Paul mentioned, or you can do it declaratively by adding a user-data-constraint entry in your deployment descriptor.

In this example, I've added the CONFIDENTIAL constraint to the tomcat/manager app:
