I have successfully configured the JBoss 2.4.4 + Tomcat 4.0.1 Bundle to use SSL on my WinNT box (both SSL and non-SSL ports working). But I have not found a way to get the EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX MBean to do port redirection (which means, if I request a web application resource which has a <transport-guarantee> of CONFIDENTIAL over http, it should redirect the request to https).
With tomcat standalone, this is handled by including the "redirectPort" attribute on the non-ssl connection definition.
Has anyone been able to get port redirection to work?
PS There is a a lengthy discussion of this on the mailing list at sourceforge if you desire more details.
you have to configure the support of HTTPS URL...
ie add to jboss.properties the line:
#JSSE https URL support
A big thanks to Alain Coetmeur for nailing this one.
