Hi. Today I will share easy recipe to resolve following error:

<org.jsfportal.shiro.FacebookRealm> <FacebookRealm> <doGetAuthenticationInfo> <Throwable: weblogic.net.http.SOAPHttpsURLConnection cannot be cast to javax.net.ssl.HttpsURLConnection>

The error can occur only when you deployed your appplication to the Weblogic Server and you try to run following (or simillar) code:

URL url;
url = new URL("https://yoururl.com");
HttpsURLConnection con = (HttpsURLConnection)url.openConnection();

There are two (or maybe more) ways to bypass this problem.
  1. Fix your code. You can create URL object in a following way:
    url = new URL(null,"https://yoururl.com",new sun.net.www.protocol.https.Handler());
  2. Using a more "general" solution you can force the usage of the Sun Http Handlers instead of the Weblogic specific. To do this you should add java option: -DUseSunHttpHandler in startWeblogic.sh or startWeblogic.cmd:
    set JAVA_OPTIONS=%JAVA_OPTIONS% -DUseSunHttpHandler=true

  1. 1. solution works great since I can't use -DUseSunHttpHandler=true parameter.
