ABAP calling HTTPS URL using CL_HTTP_CLIENT
I have a requirement where I will have to call a URL inside an ABAP or BSP passing some query parameters program and then the response will be a big string with all the data I need.
I found I can use CL_HTTP_CLIENT thanks to Brian weblog.
The URL is HTTPS, the technical contact told me that I would need to encrypt the data in SSL and after pass to the URL as a query parameter.
Also the response will be encrypted so I will need to convert from SSL before being able to interpret it.
He also said that I need to install a certificate on my webas server, and use this certificate.
So my doubts are:
Do the class CL_HTTP_CLIENT automatic convert the data to SSL?
How do I install and use such certificate?
