Description Ognjen Blagojevic 2013-03-13 17:17:18 UTC
HTTPS BIO/NIO connector in Tomcat 7 have two attributes for protocol selection:

1. sslProtocol, to enable group of protocols, e.g. setting sslProtocol="TLSv1.1" might enable SSLv3, TLSv1 and TLSv1.1, and
2. sslEnabledProtocols, to enable specific protocols, e.g. setting sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1" will enable only those two protocols.

Tomcat 6 have one documented and one undocumented attribute:

1. sslProtocol (documented) - to enable group of protocols
2. protocols, to enable specific protocols, similar as the above.

1. rename Tomcat 6 "protocols" attribute to "sslEnabledProtocols",
2. document that attribute.

I chose not to re-name the "protocols" property... I merely created (another) alias for it called "sslEnabledProtocols". I added documentation for only "sslEnabledProtocols" to encourage the use of that particular property name, but the existing property names remain valid.

Fixed in r1521514. Will be included in Tomcat 6.0.38.
