If this is in the wrong place please tell me where to put it.

I am not sure how to frame the question but here is what I can tell you.
we have a jar that runs under the iSeries JVM, we execute some classes that make calls to and get returns from an intel web service on our intranet.
Someone wants this communications to be done over SSL.

Do Java SSL Classes handle everything needed?
Or is there an additional dependency on some iSeries i5OS network Configuration to make SSL work?
