The following is some of the code I use to connect to a web service. This code functions only if the web service URL starts with 'http' rather than 'https' even though both URL's are valid.

I'd appreciate any ideas on why the code fails when the web service URL starts with 'https', but not when 'http' is used. Thanks.

The error is also included below.

CODE:


SOAPMessage message = null;
SOAPMessage response = null;
private String EndPointUrl = null;
_________________________________________________
SOAPConnectionFactory scFactory = SOAPConnectionFactory.newInstance();
SOAPConnection con = scFactory.createConnection();

EndPointUrl = "http:// ... "; // web service URL

URLEndpoint endpoint = new URLEndpoint(EndPointUrl);
response = con.call(message, endpoint);

ERROR:


javax.xml.soap.SOAPException: java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: https at org.apache.axis.soap.SOAPConnectionImpl.call(SOAPConnectionImpl.java:93)
