If the HTTPS (or HTTP) site needs to be authenticated, you create an account first, either programmatically or by using the account tool.
You may then open a connection to the site using java.net.url
classes. The Lotus® Expeditor customized HTTP/HTTPS URL handler checks whether an account mapping to the address you want to connect to exists. If an account has been created in advance, the HTTP/HTTPS URL handler does a login first and then creates the connection for you.
