(Not yet)Commons SSL

keytoolcommand provided with the JDK.
While all this is not a big deal for most of the applications, there should be a better solution for projects that rely heavily on SSL. Not-yet-commons-ssl project, called liked this because it is still not the official Apache project, aims to simplify Java and SSL integration.
First of all, it supports OpenSSL and PKCS8 formats and provides handy classes for dealing with keys and certificates in that format (see PKCS8 examples).
Also, it provides mechanism for easy creation of SSL Sockets regardless of certificate format you are using (see examples). This mechanism also allows us to configure multiple ssl socket factories inside a single JVM.
Commons SSL is a really important toolkit for all that have above modest SSL requirements. The proper support from Apache and a better documentation could help this project become even more useful.

|My mistake, I meant "it didn't passed the incubation process yet". Fixed now. Thanks.|
This blog post sure caused downloads to spike! Bandwidth tripled for a few weeks. That was exciting. I'm glad you found the library useful, Dejan. Thanks for the plug!
|I'm glad that I helped to spread the word about the library. Thanks and keep up the good work.|
