This is Seenivasan and I am interested in implementing this feature of supporting SSL connections. Could anyone guide from where to start?
As far as, I gone through the code, is it ok if we add extra connecter for SSL in the BaseXHTTP.java ?
Seenivasan, thanks a lot for your interest! The BaseXHTTP is a good point to start from, and you'll probably have to modify the web.xml class to also make SSL available if BaseX is started as web application. – We’re looking forward to your contribution!
Dear Seenivasan, did you already have some time to take a closer look at the SSL support?
Sorry, I was assigned in to another work for now.
I just send two pull requests (https://github.com/BaseXdb/basex-api/pull/61 and #530), which should add the requested functionality. Changes and help can be found (in a minute...) at http://docs.basex.org/wiki/Startup_Options#BaseX_HTTP_Server
The solution in my last comment was disregarded in favor of a more flexible approach now using jetty.xml file. The pull request https://github.com/BaseXdb/basex-api/pull/62#issuecomment-6801543 adds the support for jetty.xml and also uses as standard a new SSL connector and thereby fixing this issue.
Resolved by switching to jetty.xml config file. Feedback is welcome.
Still needs to be documented.
About to be resolved.
