What is the need for JSSE, if web security can be accomplished through https ?

JSSE is the API to create SSL sockets. https
is just the http protocol running over SSL. So,
JSSE is the way that https is generally implemented
in Java. Also, if you want to write Java applications
that communicate with an https server, then you would
use JSSE in the client to implement that connect. And
once you have JSSE you are not constrained to using
SSL in conjunction with http anymore. We use it with
RMI, LDAP, and home grown protocols as well.
