The JavaDoc for javax.portlet.BaseURL.setSecure(boolean) indicates that [javax.portlet.PortletSecurityException| javax.portlet
Class PortletSecurityException] should be thrown if the portlet container does not support the feature.
Although Pluto 2.0 did not support the feature, it did not throw the exception. This has been corrected in Pluto 3.0, but the bridge reports a verbose error stacktrace when this happens.
This issue serves as a task for reducing the verbose error logging when this condition is encountered.
