Greetings, folks!

Here is my problem. I am using axis 1.4 to create a client to some web-service. A problem is that recently the SSL certificate of that web-service has expired and now when trying to connect I am facing the followinf exception:

This is thrown while I am trying to use my previously working axis client.

I have googled a lot about this error and found out that I have to create a custom SSL TrustManager which will not throw this exception. Example of this is here:


And now the question: how can I force axis to use my new TrustManager?

The lines that go after //Install the all-trusting trust manager do not install the manager to axis, but only fix URL Connection issues of the same kind.
