How do I configure a HostnameVerifier on an HttpsURLConnection?

Dwayne Schultz

The solution:

connection.setHostnameVerifier(new HostnameVerifier()
    public boolean verify(String urlHostname, String certHostname)
        return ("www.badcert.com".equalsIgnoreCase(certHostname) &&
Here I'm using a HostnameVerifier (in an anonymous class) to overlook a certificate name mismatch. In this case the vendor 'badcert.com' is using their 'www.badcert.com' on their 'xyz.badcert.com' server.
