Re: [jetty-users] Jetty and Java 8 SSL improvements

I don't know that it's a huge task but I would need some time to complete the task.

Do you think it's a big task to implement it? There is a patch from earlier this year in that bug report which might be a good basis.

I'd prefer not to use an SSL stack written in a non-memory safe language. Perhaps I'm swapping one set of problems for another, but a Java SSL implementation seems to mitigate the scariest risks.

Also, I use continuations for long polling, which may not necessarily work that efficiently with all proxies.

It seems like Netty's API is more amenable to supporting SNI . Maybe swapping to that or using it as a proxy would be a solution.

Right now, as a workaround, I have a server dedicated to J2EE apps, 
running Jetty, and I threw Apache 2.4 on that box and am using it and

Now Java 8 has SNI support, and the ability to set the cipher suite order, are there any plans to add support in Jetty?

I see from Bugzilla that some work has been done on support, is this something that is likely to be added to Jetty in the near future?

I need to add SNI support (and ideally set the cipher suite order) and am just wondering what my options are.

Many thanks,
