> 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.
