Add HTTPS protocol support to HttpUtils

Description

HttpUtils needs to be able to make https connections in order to check whether a container has started and a webapp has been deployed. Currently, while ContainerUtils constructs a URL using the correct protocol, HttpUtils always opens an HttpURLConnection.

This is related to (Support https protocol for standalone Tomcat 5.x).
