Thanks. I am aware the hostname must match the CN
They do, which is why the error is so frustrating and unhelpful.
I'm trying to access a web service that uses BASIC Auth + SSL with a self-signed cert. I've cobbled together code that should work, and imported the cert from the server into a keystore. I have verified that the CN for the crt is identical to the target hostname and matches exactly what CertificateException is telling me it needs. I've hit a brick wall here and would appreciate any assistance an SSL veteran can provide. Thanks!


and the certs in my keystore

I see JavaFX mentioned in company with Groovy and BeanShell, giving me the impression JavaFX is intended to serve as a scripting language outside of web pages. It seems like JavaFX has a ways to go in defining itself clearly before many can understand how to or why to adopt it.

I am running JBoss 4.0.5 w/ JbossWS 1.2.1.

I have enabled the SSL connector and am able to access the WSDL for my web service using a browser on port 8443 with a certificate I created using keytool.

The client works if I provide it the old http/port 80 URL in it's local WSDL. If I try to aim it at https/port 8443, the client dies with the following error:

<soap:address location="http://localhost:8080/NetworkService/NLS"/> <-- works
<soap:address location="https://localhost:8443/NetworkService/NLS"/> <-- doesn't work

I have imported the server cert into a keystore in the client's bin directory. I configured the client to use the keystore ( I believe ) by using jboss-wsse-client.xml in the client's bin directory.

Continuing to try different paths:

From this dir,

│ ├───hello

C:\jboss_examples\examples\src\main>ls org\jboss\chap12\hello wsdl config.xml

From here I tried again, specifying the whole path to the config file and including the whole path in my specified CP.

C:\jboss_examples\examples\src\main>C:\Sun\jwsdp-2.0\jaxrpc\bin\wscompile -classpath c:\jboss_examples\examples\src\main\org\jboss\chap12\hello -gen:server -f:rpcliteral -mapping mapping.xml org\jboss\chap12\hello\config.xml

error: RmiModeler error: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org$jboss$chap12$hello$Hello

I'm working through the JBoss ws tutorial and right off the bat they recommend building the AS service descriptors using Sun's wscompile app. Fine. I do so from the directory the code resides in, and I get a ClassNotFound error.

The instruction in the tutorial ( take from the JBoss 4.0 Official Guide ) is simply:

wscompile -classpath <classpath> -gen:server -f:rpcliteral -mapping mapping.xml config.xml

This is what I did.

I tried performing the operation from the parent directory ( specifying the relative path to the config.xml file ), but got the same error.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Based on your suggestion Craig I rooted around and found the problem. I was stumbling over the connection pool concerns, just trying to get them to work, I missed the more basic JDBC related errors. Your mention regarding the Connection object got me back on track.

Many thanks for your time!

The only start up errors I get has something to do with tomcat already using the port it wants to use. ( A perplexing error that doesn't seem to stop tomcat from launching. )

The context.xml file is in webapps/jobtracker/META-INF/context.xml.

For sanity, I quit NetBeans, went on with life for a couple of hours, read your post and tried again. THis time, it magically worked. NetBeans itself, not just Tomcat, must have needed a restart. An annoying lesson. I need to find out how to get netbeans to use MY tomcat installation...but that's a separate issue.

Regardless, I appreciate your time verifying my configuration.

Now, I am getting a 'connection pool exhausted' error on submitting the form.

The function in question is this:

The specific line is:

So I went back and confirmed the related information was specified in the server.xml file:

Now there should be more than enough connections. However, I am doing a batch. (One form entry is still only one query though. ) Could this be a problem? Is there somewhere else I should look for trouble?

THanks again.

I'm trying to write a tag that takes form input and inserts it into a database. (Perhaps not clean, but I'm playing around. )

I'm using Netbeans 4.x ( which includes Tomcat 5.5.x ).

WHen I submit the form I get the following error ( truncated )

I read the JNDI HOW-TO, other Tomcat documents relating to JDBC and JNDI naming, as well as other research. The result is a slightly mixed approach that closely matches the recommendations from the HOW-TO. Comparing what I have to the HOW-TO, I don't know where the issue is.

Here's the server.xml entry:

Here's the context.xml ( within the webapp file system ) entry :

Here's the deployment descriptor for the webapp:

and finally the code that's supposed to be initializing the DataSource

The line it specifically hiccups on is this one:

Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

Okay, that was the clue-by-four I was looking for. Thanks!
I didn't recognize the significance of the nested class.

I'm trying to parse incoming form intput into a table where one column prints out the name of the parameter, the other column its value. Since the request.param object is a HashMap, it should have both. Is there simply no way to do this? ( I should note that it prints out the values alone just fine. )

If it is possible, as it is in PHP, what is the field name for the parameter names? Thanks!

here's the code fragment:

I wrote my app as a stand alone using crond, but the poster's needs might require JSP, or might be more interested/comfortable with JSP. I didn't say it was a great idea, only a possibility.

IIUC, to create a daemon, simply write a headless app that runs in the background that checks the date every minute or so for a date change. This would be implemented in regular java, not JSP or Servlets.

I wrote an app to upload data to a database every hour, and used UNIX cron to call it. I figured that would be more reliable.

You could write all of the email code into JSP, and call the JSP using a shell script using some type of system schedule ( whether you're using Windows or UNIX ). Not pretty, but simple if you want to stick to JSP.

Doh! Sorry, I misunderstood your suggestion.


Removing the enctype did the trick, not something I would have thought of at all because I thought everything, including the POST data, was /supposed/ to be text/html.

I changed the form declaration:

This is what I get now:

Many thanks for your time and input.

Thanks for the suggestion, but no joy. I still got no data in the request object.

Here is the html of the form as it is now:

and the JSP page that processes it as it is now:

and the result:

Is there a separate object that the POST data is placed into? Is there another method I should be using to access POST data? Is there a known issue relating to MacOS implementation of Java that I haven't otherwise run into?

I appreciate your assistance.
