Hi

I have servlets/jsp my web application, ( in a EAR ). I have now configured https in Jboss, now i see that i can access the same JSP/Servlets thru https ( i.e. http://localhost:8080/login.jsp can now be accessed by url https://localhost:8443/login.jsp )

so does this mean all my communications are secure as long as i use https instead of http, or disable http and i dont need to do any changes to my code ( servlets/jsp) .

please let me know ( sorry i am new to security )

thanks
Hari

If you can successfully access the app using https, then your keys are properly installed and the network traffic should be encrypted.

You can use a tool such a WireShark to view the network traffic and verify this for yourself.
