Subject Re: Use a keystore in java application
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2009 08:16:37 GMT
As far I know,  for 1-way authentication, you only have to import the
keystore and certificate from the Web service,  and set up the environment
in the Web Service Client ( via System.setProperty).

You need to provide your own certificate in a keystore for mutual
authentications, that is, when you also want the remote Web service to trust
you.
