      Description

      I want to crawl my site, which is https, using the protocol-httpclient plug-in. However it throws exceptions each request, something about an unknown algorithm "SunX509" for SSL. I don't recall the exact message. I don't have permission to change the JRE on our production server.

      I had to modify DummyX509TrustManager to hardcode the string to "IbmX509" instead of "SunX509" in order to work. It would be better if the plug-in could automatically figure out which one to use. At the very least, try the major ones until you don't hit any exception and take that one.
