I had the same problem with another application server.
I solved it by accessing the secure website with internet explorer.
The client will represent the server certificate. If you view the 
certificate and go to the details,
you can save the certificate to a file. Choose the base64 encoded version 
and you the server certificate in a file.

To be able to use it on the client, you have to add the server certificate 
to the 'approved' certificates of the client JVM.
There are documents on describing how to do that.

We are using an Apache Web server as a front end to proxy requests
to Tomcat. Has anyone gotten the Java client/Apache Web server running
SSL combination to work *without* buying a real certificate from Verisign?
If so, instructions apprecitaed! We will buy the real certificate for
but it would be nice to test things under SSL before we do that.
