Retrofit handle the SSLHandshakeException

This blog focus on Retrofit handle the SSLHandshakeException.

Using Retrofit as your network library is a very good option for android app development. But many a time we face  the SSLHandshakeException (java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: Trust anchor for certification path not found.) to be particular.

This error means that the secure url you are making request to is not allowing your Retrofit to connect and fetch data.
If you can manage to change the usage from https to http then this will work perfectly fine and you don’t need to actually change anything.

But, if you can’t then you need to modify your retrofit Request builder object ( OkHttpClient.Builder to be particular) so that your application can fetch the data and the exception mentioned in the title is not a hurdle anymore.

Logical Approach

You need to modify your  OkHttpClient.Builder object in your Retrofit request so that your request can actually create a certificate that can be trusted by your server and your server can allow the access to your request.

CODE

Modified OkHttpClient.Builder Object.

using this object in your retrofit request.

That’s All.
