RE: [xmlblaster] adding SSL to xmlBlaster

The FAQ doesn't say it, but wouldn't you have to set up the proxy ssh
situation on the server too and have xmlBlaster connect to the local port
just as the client connects to its local port?

Also, I'm looking for a client solution that is enclosed in the client so...
I'm going to have to use JSSE for any Java-based clients (which is ok,
however, will mean I have to hack up the xmlBlaster client libs OR do a code
version of what's suggested in the FAQ.... going to try out that second
option and see where it leads me)

Thanks for the reference.

Hi Colin

You can establish an SSL tunnel, see:


Another possibility is to use JacORB's SSL features, see


If you use RMI or XmlRpc i think there are solutions as well

please report if/how you succeeded (for our FAQ),



PS: Authentication and authorization with tomcat probably requires that 
you write a security plugin.
