After completing the ssl configuration on the Apache HTTP Server for 11.5.10.2, users see a SSL handshake failed error during getting html content for OA Framework notifications.

All notifications containing OA Framework HTML content wait on the MAIL status in the wf_notifications table.

The following error is received when running test.sh to confirm the problem:

oracle.apps.fnd.wf.common.HTTPClientException: Unable to invoke method HTTPClient.HTTPConnection.Get caused by: javax.net.ssl.SSLException: SSL handshake failed
