Let's replace JKS to PKCS12 key store type
------------------------------------------

         Key: GERONIMO-2015
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2015
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Improvement
    Security: public (Regular issues)

Hello

Let's replace JKS to PKCS12 key store type; because PKCS12 is widely used key store and Geronimo
may not work on non-Sun VMs.

To fix this problem I have created the patch for Geronimo sources.
In brief the patch (attached) replaces JKS to PKCS12 key store type in configurations files.

PKCS12 format of key store file is not java-specific and can be created and read by other
programs, e.g. Internet Explorer. In addition PKCS12 exists in Bouncy Castle (http://www.bouncycastle.org)
security provider, while JKS is Sun specific key store and does not exist in Bouncy Castle.
Also it is needed to replace JKS to PKCS12 keystore file (attached) to assemblies/j2ee-tomcat-server/src/var/security,
assemblies/j2ee-installer/src/var/security, assemblies/j2ee-jetty-server/src/var/security
directories. Key store file was generating using JKSToPKCS12 class (attached). This class
transfers key and certificate of Geronimo from JKS to PKCS12.

After I apply this patch to Geronimo 1.0 sources and build Geronimo I can login to Geronimo
console over https.
