SSLFilterFactory and keystore paths


I have a question about SSLFilterFactory and keystore paths. I am using the three system properties described here in order to encrypt communications between GS client and server:


It seems that SSLFilterFactory.createSSLContext() or SSLFilterFactory.loadKeyStore() is changing the path that I have specified into what looks like some kind of default path. Are there limitations or restrictions over what constitutes a legal keystore path?

What would cause my specified keystore path to be converted into ./working_directory/keystore ??

The files are loaded from the classpath, you'll need to update the classpath to contain your keystore location.

Yes, I did that already. The path is in the classpath. I don't believe that is the reason the path is changing in one of these methods. Can someone look at the source code and tell me what would cause this?

I've looked at the source code, that's why I answered that.

You can try to increase the logging level of this logger: com.gigaspaces.common.resourceloader. Maybe you can understand what is going exactly with your specified path.

What is the path string you are setting in the system property?

The issue seems to be that the Eclipse RCP framework is giving me a path that seems to mix unix-isms with Windows-isms and the result is not a valid path according to Java under Windows. Editing the path slightly fixes the problem and GS continues merrily on its way... I will file a bug about the Eclipse URL/file-path issue.
