How to disable hostname verification in JBoss WS CXF

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Is there a way to disable hostname verification in JBoss WS CXF?
  • Disabling certificate common name check does not work in EAP 6.1.0 using Apache CXF which leads to the following issue:-
Caused by: The https URL hostname does not match the Common Name (CN) on the server certificate in the client's truststore.  Make sure server certificate is correct, or to disable this check (NOT recommended for production) set the CXF client TLS configuration property "disableCNCheck" to true.
  • My client is presenting the following error:
2013-12-10 13:09:48,870 ERROR[](pool-306-thread-1) IO problem for
 https://HOST/CONTEXT/images.res?imageName=IMG.jpg HTTPS hostname wrong: should be <IP_ADDRESS>
  • Is it recommended to use the parameter ""?
  • Is it better to configure the application to ignore the certificates?
