Hi forum,

Searching furiously hasn't turned up anything, so here's my problem. I'd like to use Oracle's MSCAPI support for Java in Eclipse to hit a secure website. Here's a simple test I've been doing from the command line:

cat > <<EOT
public class TestURL {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        System.out.println(((HttpURLConnection)new URL(args[0]).openConnection()).getResponseCode());
java -cp . TestURL some-secure-site-address
# Pin is prompted for here...
# Should report 200

The MSCAPI extension causes a prompt for my PIN, and the connection is made successfully. Notice the parameters. My eclipse.ini has these lines at the bottom:

After launching Eclipse, I used VisualVM to verify that these system properties did indeed get set in the JVM. However, trying to connect to our task repository (a JIRA installation) results in a handshake_failure. It seems like Eclipse or one of its plugins is reconfiguring the SSL context. How can I either get Eclipse to obey those SSL settings?

EDIT: After setting{key,trust}StorePassword
, I've found something interesting: NONE (The system cannot find the file specified)
	at Method)
	at org.eclipse.mylyn.internal.tasks.ui.TasksUiPlugin.start(
	at org.eclipse.osgi.framework.internal.core.BundleContextImpl$

I looked at an older version at grepcode (I can't post the link since I have <25 posts) and found it tries to use these standard properties itself and chokes on the fact that NONE isn't a valid file. I created a file called "NONE" in Eclipse's home directory and, lo and behold, it works! Now I can use my smart card from within Eclipse, woo hoo!

I wanted to thank you so much for posting this. I was looking for settings in order to use the MSCAPI to access certificates from the Windows store for a Java plug-in that we are running. Your posting pointed me in the right direction and helped me tremendously.
