PostgreSQL datasource with SSL only connects when using NonValidatingFactory for SSL factory

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Creating a PostgreSQL datasource secured with SSL and specified the keystore containing the database's public certificate using the system properties. The JDBC driver is not able to validate the database server certificate and will only work if the sslfactory=org.postgresql.ssl.NonValidatingFactory flag is contained in the JDBC connection string.
