Subject Re: [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-3054) org.apache.geronimo.util.jce.X509V1CertificateGenerator appears to be deprecated with no replacement
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2007 14:53:58 GMT
Thanks -- I see the updated classes in Bouncy Castle.  The issue is 
around importing PKCS7 certs, and the cert chain not being imported 
properly.  It's actually associated with the file, 
but I want to make sure I have "clean code" before I call it a bug.
