    PKIX path building failed from Module

      Hello,

       

      I've been set up a module which need to connect to a WebService via HTTPS.

       

      On connect I obtain the following exception :

       

      Caused by: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPath

      BuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

      I deployed the jar with the application instead of using a module and it works well. I guess I must miss something in the module.xml. Here's mine:

       

      <module xmlns="urn:jboss:module:1.0" name="my.module">

          <resources>

              <!-- Insert resources here -->

          </resources>

       

       

          <dependencies>

                      <module name="javax.api"/>

                      <module name="org.apache.commons.codec"/>

          </dependencies>

      </module>

       

       

      Thank you for your help
