XML through SSL ??

You must have configured things wrong.  Java Servlets have supported
SSL since their first major release -- "https" is just like HTTP except
that it's got the "Secure Sockets _LAYER_" between the HTTP and TCP.

I've sent XML to an HTTP(S) servlet, so I can testify it works.  But
check your web server configuration -- the "https" parts of servers
are normally distinct from the insecure "http" ones, so being able
to contact a servlet via "http" doesn't mean it'll work securely.

Subject: XML through SSL ??

We have implemented SSL (Secured Socket Layer) in our project. When the XML
"FORM" contacts the (Java) Servlet it should throw an XML page with *https*
protocol...... But the browser says "XSL : Access is denied" !!

The same page I can see directly (by address) in browser (through https),
but not programmatically through servlet !! XML is also referring XSL
through https.

(But the same servlet can throw HTML page through https !!!!! So I guess it
finds the XML but not the XSL)

But one more catch is......as my servlet extends HttpServlet, the XML "FORM"
is contacting the servlet through "http" & not through
https".........[ even I tried through https, but the FORM doesn't recognizes
the servlet !!! I guess Java Servlet doesn't support SSL, am I right ?? ]

Is anybody doing similar work ??
