Connecting to splunk enterprise using splunk sdk for java

Explorer

Hi,

I am getting the below exception when trying to connect to splunk enterprise using the splunk SDK
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Unrecognized SSL message, plaintext connection?

Can anyone suggest as to what the issue might be?

Thanks,

Not enough info really.
It could be a few things, for example;

As per: https://answers.splunk.com/answers/67327/splunk-java-sdk-connection-to-splunk-failed.html
And: https://answers.splunk.com/answers/206990/why-am-i-getting-a-splunk-java-sdk-handshake-failu.html
"Ensure that your connection credentials are correct, notably that you are using HTTPS over Port 8089 to your SplunkD Server.
As a guess, you might be trying to connect to SplunkWeb on port 8000, which is not where the REST endpoints are located."

As per: https://answers.splunk.com/answers/209379/no-appropriate-protocol-protocol-is-disabled-or-ci.html
"Splunk needs to release a new jar without SSLv3 hardwired (in HttpService.java) in order to make this work with the latest Java 8. Meanwhile you need to stick with Java 7 or build your own jar from the SDK package and use SSLv2 instead."
