I have a standalone InfoCenter application to provide the user documentation. I need to know how I can configure the secure access to the InfoCenter using https.

I have found the following link on tomcat based InfoCenter:

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/viewvc.cgi/platform-help-home /infocenter_secure_access.html?view=co

I am looking for similar information on jetty based InfoCenter, such as the information on the names of files and configuration parameters in order to set that keystore path and password.

Thanks very much for your help!

I can think of two options:

The easiest way is to use a proxy server to provide https access to the outside world.
The second way is to build the infocenter as a war file, see http://help.eclipse.org/helios/topic/org.eclipse.platform.do c.isv/guide/ua_help_war.htm .

There would be a third way if Eclipse had an easy way to switch out the JettyHelpServer class for a secure version, it is possible to do this but it would take some time to write a secure version of JettyHelpServer so I would recommend instead one of the other two options.

Hi, Chris:

I tried your second option (tomcat) above. It worked beautifully. Thanks a lot!
