Hi Matt,

Thank you for your response. Yes, I was finally able to get rid of the
exception with the method you suggested.

However as far as I know the issue extends beyond the Sun Java WTK.
Various handset manufacturers have different implementations of this
JSR and while some do accept wildcard SSL certificates, some do not.

In such a case wouldn't it be sensible for mobile app developers to
use the HTTP method as a fail-safe method for authentication? Is there
any catch to this?

Regards,

Amit.
