      Description

      SSLSocket/SSLEngine have similar method calls to SSLParameters, and it's not clear that the SSLParameters are just a replacement for those calls.

      > In the JDK there is a class named SSLParameters that contains some of
      > the configuration values for TLS.
      > Some of those are duplicated in SSLSocket and SSLEngine (e.g.
      > wantClientAuth, needClientAuth, etc), with some temporal dependency
      > (call this before the other, if I have to trust the comments of
      > SSLSocketImpl.setHost()).
      > Eventually all values get forwarded to the handshaker, but from the
      > API point of view it's not very clear what API one should call (the
      > one on SSLEngine or the one on SSLParameters), nor where the ALPN
      > setup should be done.

      Suggest we add some notes to the older SSLSocket/SSLEngine to encourage use of the SSLParameters.
