I have 3 pages that send a user's password to the server, so I need them to be sent over SSL. So I declared them in the DD:



The problem is that, after I leave one of the pages (and I no longer need SSL), all the web app links are still pointing to the secure mode, so I can't switch back to "normal" mode:
* before: HTTP://<host>:8080/path
* after: HTTPS://<host>:8181/path

How can I solve this problem?

When you create the links you will have to build in "http" - otherwise the browser assumption of https will continue.

Yes, but is there a way to build the links with full path without hard-coding the host name, the port and the app name?

Yes. Have a look at the methods on the HttpServletRequest object (and it's super object, ServletRequest).
There are methods like getServerName(), getScheme(), getProtocol(), getLocalPort(), getServletPath() and so on.
