Zorba is actually able to make https requests by default on Windows now, I'm nearly sure. I believe this may have been done internally by de- activating curl's default "verify peer certificates" behaviour. There is a separate bug, bug 867136, which tracks making this a runtime option instead of a compile-time option.
Rodolfo, if you can verify that this is working by default and that my diagnosis about curl is correct, then you can resolve this bug. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zorba Coders, which is the registrant for Zorba. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/866886 Title: Zorba for Windows cannot make HTTPS requests Status in Zorba - The XQuery Processor: In Progress Bug description: We just discovered that under Windows, making requests to: https://api-3t.sandbox.paypal.com/nvp or https://www.credit-suisse.com using the http-client, one gets back a response with status -1. The command line Curl tool on Windows also reject such calls because it cannot verify the certificates, reporting: curl: (60) SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed More details here: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle" of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file using the --cacert option. If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might not match the domain name in the URL). If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use the -k (or --insecure) option.
