Certicom SSL supports a feature described as "HonorCipherorder"
JSSE does not support this functionality.

WLS used to use Certicom-SSL. Now JSSE.
Hence there is s a loss of functionality.

Seems as if the needed work is already mostly done by one guy named Neale Rudd (http://wiki.metawerx.net/wiki/NealeRudd)

He is talking about a patch for openjdk that delivers exactly this feature in JSSE.

This is the mailinglist thread:

sun/security/ssl/javax/net/ssl/SSLParameters/UseCipherSuitesOrder.java passe in B108 all platform

Bumping priority. Support paying customer has requested such a feature and I've pinged product management to look into it.
