How to set the -D UseSunHttpHandler setting on request level using API for secure webservice call over proxy (Doc ID 1437835.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In WLS 10.3.3, a secure webservice client (over 1-way or 2-way SSL) over proxy server needs the following settings -

  1. Use ClientProxyFeature to set the proxy host and port programmatically, so that the proxy settings apply on only request level. 

  2. Then, on server server, ClientProxyFeature would needs to set -DUseSunHttpHandler=true in order to use the Sun HTTP connection, instead of regular HTTP connection (which is default in WLS).

Is there a way to set the UseSunHttpHandler on request level as well, so that no server-level setting is required?
