Getting SSL exception in local environment: for the httpclient post API (HTTPS URL) developed in another dashboard

Hi All,


Currently working on one functionality where I have to call one post API developed in another dashboard. It will act like public API which I can call from my current project and get the required response.


Current flow is like from UI when I hit one button, it will call local java service and that service will call this API using HttpClient post method. API URL is HTTPS URL.


Normally when I create simple standalone java class file having the httpclient post API call, it works and returns the response.

But when I integrate same code in my local project and call this service, it gives me following error when the service get hit Received fatal alert: protocol_version


Following Solutions are tried:

  1. Previously project configured with Java 7 and later tried with Java 8, still it gives same error.
  2. Tried with other solution. It also did not worked.

System.setProperty("https.protocols", "TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2");

SSLContext sc = SSLContext.getInstance("TLSv1.2");

// Init the SSLContext with a TrustManager[] and SecureRandom()

sc.init(null, null, new;


Please let me know if any solution for this.
