By default, accessing an HTTPS URL using the URL class results in an exception if the server’s certificate chain cannot be validated has not previously been installed in the trust store.
Working with: Eclipse as platform, JAVA for the programming language
Purpose: certificate yourself to a webservice so that you can perform operations and access his methods. This tutorial will only step you through the steps of certificating.
Steps to follow:
1. have the necessary certificate
2. install the keytool plugin
3. Java code to use
If you don’t already have the certificate and you need to export it, remember to select the “Base-64 encoded x.509” option on the export options.
- Install the “keytool” plugin in Eclipse. Use this: http://keytool.sourceforge.net/update/ This keytool stores a multitude of certificates. You can import a new certificate in his “store”. After you install the keytool, restart Eclipe. After that you will see in the top Eclipse menu another option “Keytool”. Click it and choose “Open keystore”. A new window will pop up asking you some information that you need to complete.
– Type: choose JKS
– Filename: the path to the java cacerts file(C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\security\cacerts)
– Password: changeit(it by default)
After this, a “store” of already imported certificates will be open, at your disposal 😀 , but for this operation all you want to do is import your certificate into it.
To do that right click on the name of the store and choose: “Import certificate”, like in figure 2.
After you click the “Import certificate” this window will pop out :
Keystore: path to the cacerts(as above)
Filename : actual path for the certificate you want to import.
Alias: give it a name as an identifier: eg: Xcertificate
Just click “Finish” button.
3. Now I java code, before everything you need to “tell” the program about the certificate you imported with keytool. These are the 2 lines of code:
keyCert = “javax.net.ssl.trustStore”;
valueCertPath = “C:/Program Files/Java/jre6/lib/security/cacerts”;
trustPassKey = “javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword”;
trustPassValue = “changeit”;
And that’s about it.

Finally, there’s another very important peculiarity of what does Cialis that brings it so high above its alternatives. It is the only med that is available in two versions – one intended for use on as-needed basis and one intended for daily use. As you might know, Viagra and Levitra only come in the latter of these two forms and should be consumed shortly before expected sexual activity to ensure best effect. Daily Cialis, in its turn, contains low doses of Tadalafil, which allows to build its concentration up in your system gradually over time and maintain it on acceptable levels, which, consequently, makes it possible for you to enjoy sex at any moment without having to time it.
Thanks for writing something about the keytool plugin. I think this s a nice plugin, which allows any Eclipse user to work with Java keystores easier. Of course, you can always manage a Java keystore using the command line tool. Besides official documentation (like http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/tooldocs/windows/keytool.html), I think that this link is a handy tutorial: http://www.mobilefish.com/tutorials/java/java_quickguide_keytool.htmlNovember 9, 2009 at 10:35 am
If you don’t like to keep in mind how to use the keytool from the command line (I don’t), than the keytool plugin is something nice to consider.
