Sure, what we're working with is possibly using different server
certificates for different servlets, is this at all possible? From what I
can tell right now, no.

Basically what I see right now is if we turn on ssl support it uses the
certificate that you specify for each connection from the
SSLServerSocketFactory.  The only way I can see doing this is to specify a
different port for different certificates, correct?
