javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Remote host closed connection during handshake

Hello, I am trying to access the URL https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Authentication/RequestToken from Java application. The JDK version used was 1.8. It fails with the exception javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Remote host closed connection during handshake. I have tried pointing https.protocol to TLSv1 but it didnt work. Any help on this issue will be much appreciated?

Our PROD site is currently stuck on TLS1.0 and Java 8 contained a change that specifically excludes TLS1.0 by default. We are expecting this to be solved soon (before the end of the year). Can you work in Java 7 for your testing while we wait for that change?

Note: I could only find internal links to places where update notifications would be posted and available so i will have to come back and manually update this topic when I get an exact date.
