      Description

      I seem to be having the same issue as here: CXF-4355.
      I downgrading from 2.7.5 to 2.5.2 and then the error disappeared.

      I have my code working for the versions under 2.6.0 that I tried ( 2.5.2, 2.5.7, 2.5.9 and 2.5.10)
      All versions I tried from 2.6: 2.6.0, 2.7.5, 3.0.0-SNAPSHOT (SVN revision 1499610, 4-July-2013) failed.
      I tried the trunk because I saw the issue CXF-5075 and thought it might be related (it wasn't)

      The main difference with my code and your testcases is that the server has a chain of 3 certificates with the root CA being self signed.
      (We are also using client side SSL but I don't think this is related).

      In my truststore I have all the certificates in the chain (I get the same behaviour with just the root certificate).

      I tried to produce a testcase (to show it failing on 2.7.5 and passing on 2.5.2) from the sample: wsdl_first_https but didn't manage to get my keystore correct and it failed on server startup.
      I will try again but maybe you have a suitable keystore already?

      We're using Java6 but I also tried Java7 and had the same result.

      I tried to see what might have caused the change but couldn't really see anthing between 2.5.2 and 2.6.0 that may have caused it (but there were a lot of changes so I could easily have missed it).
      Debugging didn't shed any light either.
      The service I am connecting to is a third party so I cannot change it.

      I am setting up the truststore programmatically:
      private static void setupTrustedCertificates(TLSClientParameters tlsClientParameters)

      { KeyStore trustStore = getKeyStore(trustStoreLoc); TrustManager[] myTrustStoreKeyManagers = getTrustManagers(trustStore); tlsClientParameters.setTrustManagers(myTrustStoreKeyManagers); }

      private static TrustManager[] getTrustManagers(KeyStore trustStore) {
      try

      { String alg = KeyManagerFactory.getDefaultAlgorithm(); TrustManagerFactory trustManagerFactory = TrustManagerFactory.getInstance(alg); trustManagerFactory.init(trustStore); return trustManagerFactory.getTrustManagers(); }

      catch (Exception e)

      { throw throwCleanRuntimeException(e); }

      }

      Any ideas of something I could try?

      Stacktrace is below. I can email the full SSL debug logging but didn't want to attach it here as it is slightly sensitive.
