DefaultHostnameVerifier throws RuntimeException causing the IOReactor in HttpCore NIO to die. I have registered an issue on Apache HttpCore NIO
HTTPCORE-660, but I really think this should be fixed in CXF.
Please not that the line in question was changed from returning false to throwing RuntimeException as part of CXF-7876. But, maybe a better approach would be to not catch the SSLException. This will not kill the IOReactor in HttpCore NIO.
