I am getting the following error when connecting to a web service. What is the error and what does this mean.

javax.net.ssl.SSLException: Received fatal alert: protocol_version

This error is caused when upgrading to java 8 when the web service endpoint is expecting TLS V1.0. In java 8 the TLS version is defaulted to V1.2. NYC CIR registry is one example of this.

Qvera will have a fix in the 2.0.42 release due the end of Q3 2015. In the meantime you need to downgrade to Java version 7.
