Hi Xuelei,

Sure, I am fine to use the approach which is implemented in 
SSLSocketSample.java. But please note that 
SSLEngineBadBufferArrayAccess.java test uses ServerSocket+SSEngine on 
server side, so I applied the approach from SSLSocketSample.java to the 


If everything is okay, I am going to apply this approach to other test 
bugs we have.

I am wondering if we could move some common code from 
SSLSocketSample.java to a helper class, so that it could be re-used by 
other tests (not for all of them because tests may be different). It 
might reduce some duplicate code.
