HTTPS connections need to make sure the server 'at the other end' is actually the server it claims to be. This is done using public key certificates. For testing purposes or to save the costs of a commercially issued certificate, it is possible to use a self-issued certificate. This blog post shows how to connect to this kind of servers in IntelliJ IDEA or other Java programs.

When implementing fluent APIs, this lack of support can lead to significant duplication of boilerplate code. Taking FEST Assertions as an example, this article shows how "self types" can be emulated in Java using Generics.
