I am attempting to make an https connection to a URL like https://mycompany.com .
When I invoke the URL constructor, the simulator throws a MalformedURLException, saying "unknown protocol: https".
Can the simulator handle https connections? Is there any extra configuration necessary beyond the default setup in order to enable https connections?
I assume that https connections can succeed without any certificate(s) installed, similar to how, by default, the simulator doesn't require signing to request network access. Is that accurate?
