The code for CustomFileResourceProvider is as (creating CustomFileResourceProvider):

[language=java:bxc7ifsk]import java.io.BufferedInputStream;
import java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.net.URL;
import java.net.URLConnection;

import org.zefer.cache.ResourceProvider;

public class CustomFileResourceProvider extends ResourceProvider {

public byte[] getResourceAsBytes(String resource, boolean debugOn) throws IOException {
ByteArrayOutputStream fos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
byte buffer[] = new byte[2048];

InputStream is = null;

//resource = “http://pd4ml.com/i/” + resource;

URL src = new URL(resource);
URLConnection urlConnect = src.openConnection();
try {
} catch (Throwable e) {
return new byte[0];
is = urlConnect.getInputStream();
BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(is);

int read;
do {
read = is.read(buffer, 0, buffer.length);
if (read > 0) { // something to put down
fos.write(buffer, 0, read);
} while (read > -1);


return fos.toByteArray();
I’ll try output diagnostic information next but i think i tried before to output the resource location to see if this appear in the system log and nothing appear which suggested the CustomFileResourceProvider never got used/called.

What code do i need to add to the above to get it to work with HTTPS locations?

I also have access to our servers so if they do not resolve the website URL then I will add them to the hosts file so it should. Am i correct in thinking that would solve any resolving issue pd4ml may have??
