[iaik-ssl] extending HttpsURLConnection
I'd like to create a new class which extends HttpsURLConnection (I want to
override the "setRequestMethod" to accept even non-standard methods).
So I implemented the class to be something like:
public class MyHttpsURLConnection extends HttpsURLConnection
public MyHttpsURLConnection(URL u) throws IOException
public void setRequestMethod(String method) throws ProtocolException
this.method = method;
But, as I understand, this is not enough, since when calling
"url.openConnection()", I need to get "MyHttpsURLConnection", and not other
so I created a subclass of iaik.protocol.https.Handler which looks something
public class MyHandler extends Handler
protected URLConnection openConnection(URL u)
return new MyHttpsURLConnection(u);
and I give it as "addHandler" to HttpsURLStreamHandlerFactory instance.
So my main code looks like:
MyHandler my_handler = new MyHandler ();
HttpsURLStreamHandlerFactory factory = new
factory.addHandler ("HTTPS", my_handler);
MyHttpsURLConnection con =
The problem is that I get a casting exception for the last line. Which means
that openConnection() didn't return the expected MyHttpsURLConnection
object but something else.
Does anyone has an idea what am I doing wrong?
