DevTest 8 and 9 – All versions and platforms


When trying to execute a service that is using SSL with DevTest to a secure service that has resolved the POODLE SSLv3 vunerability, you may not be able to access the secure service with our defaut SSL settings in our embedded JRE.


Add the following properties to your file.   Will need these settings for your Workstation environment when authoring a test to the secure SSL service,  and for your simulators that will execute the test against the service.


Additional Information:

Although we are allowing the unsafe negotiations to be handled by DevTest, this is an acceptable workaround since DevTest is a testing product and not intended to be used as a production product.
