    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3...oid-with-https

    Is this a method call or a variable declaration ?

    private TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]{
    }


    private TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]{
    new X509TrustManager() {
    public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
    return null;
    }
    public void checkClientTrusted(
    java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {
    }
    public void checkServerTrusted(
    java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {

    My confusion is this:
    private TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]{
    new X509TrustManager() {
    public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
    return null;
    }
    public void checkClientTrusted(
    java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {
    }
    public void checkServerTrusted(
    java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {
    }
    }
    };

    ups I mean this:
    private TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]{
    new X509TrustManager() {
    public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
    return null;
    }

    How this should be understood ?
    public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
    return null;

    public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers()
    That looks like a method definition.

    Your code would be more readable if you would Edit your post and wrap your code with[code=java]<YOUR CODE HERE>[/code] to get highlighting

    Norm: it is not my code I am trying to understand
    soap - KSOAP 2 Android with HTTPS - Stack Overflow
    when you click on the link you will see this
    private TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]{
    new X509TrustManager() {
    public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
    return null;
    }
    public void checkClientTrusted(
    java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {
    }
    public void checkServerTrusted(
    java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {
    }
    }
    };
    I abosolutely don't understand and Array with so many method call, the is idea of doing this ?

    TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]
    That code defines an array named trustAllCerts of type TrustManager
    If you had properly formatted the code you would see.

    private TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]{  //define array
           new X509TrustManager() {  // Define a class as element in the array
                     // add  methods to the class
                     public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
                           return null;
                     }
                     public void checkClientTrusted(java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {
                     }
                     public void checkServerTrusted(java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType) {
                    }
           }  // end of class
    }; //end of array definition
