CallbackHandler of type CERTIFICATE


Does anyone have any examples of using the CallbackHandler for type CERTIFICATE? I'm attempting to modify a LoginModule to examine the certificate sent by the client for some special processing, but I seem to always get a null pointer back. An example code snippet follows...

Callback[] callbacks new Callback[1];
callbacks[0] new HttpGetterCallback();

((HttpGetterCallback) callbacks[0]).setType(HttpCallback.CERTIFICATE);

try {
    } catch (UnsupportedCallbackException e) {
	return false;
    } catch (IOException e) {
	throwUserLoginException(e, LoginExceptionDetails.IO_EXCEPTION);

For some reason,

((HttpGetterCallback) callbacks[1]).getValue()

always returns null.
