Subject Creating a keygeneration task using ant.
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2009 07:37:01 GMT

Hi, I've been spending some time migrating most of a building environment over to ant to provide
a simpler and cross-system building solution for a client/server java application and i got
kinda stuck at one particular step when it comes to creating SSL keys.

I found the wonderful task Genkey for creating SSL key stores and adding certificates into
them. This tool was simple enough for me to understand and execute, but when it comes to exporting
one certificate from one store and putting it in another, i can't seem to find any ant task
that is suitable for my need.

The current temporary solution is to use the exec task to execute keytools to do this for
me, something that does work, but isn't the prettiest solution. So, for clarity the keytool
steps for exporting and importing certificates in already existing stores are as follows (And
if i'm doing something blatantly wrong, please correct me.).

keytool -export -keystore -storepass server -alias Server -file server.cer
keytool -import -alias Server -file server.cer -keystore -storepass nmsclient

keytool -export -keystore -storepass client -alias Client -file client.cer
keytool -import -alias Client -file client.cer -keystore -storepass server

What i'm wondering if it's possible ( That is without creating my own custom task ) to do
this with a pure ant task.

Best regards MB-JD.

I tried sending this question yesterday, but I accidentally sent it from the incorrect address
so i fear that it did not reach its destination.
If this now happens to be a duplicate I apologise deeply and ask you to disregard this mail.
