I have been able to narrow down the source of the problem. We are using a client-side certificate. When the servlet attempts to load the HelpSet, the request is rejected. If I attempt to use another URL (e.g. jar:…), the HelpSet is loaded but the actual pages cannot be displayed. What do I need to do to make a client-side certificate available to the servlet?
I am still stumped on the solution to this problem. Any suggestions?
I have been able to get the JVM to load client certificate. It involved loading the certificate and the CA certificate into keystores and specifying them with:
Now the file is not loading due to java.net.SocketException: Software caused connection abort: recv failed.
