For SSL enabled sites, when is the secure connection establishedThe first HTTPS connection is established the first time you use an HTTPS URL.
The SSL handshake occurs at the beginning of an SSL connection.
Not sure why this is such a mystery.
It needs to post some sensitive data, so I want to ensure that the encryption is established prior to posting to the servlet.No you don't, you want to ensure that that post takes place over HTTPS. So use an HTTPS URL for the POST.
