Subject Cannot set up certs for trusted CAs exception ( JCE and tomcat an d cocoon2.0)
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2001 02:54:05 GMT
Hi

I have been experiencing some problems using JCE, in the tomcat environment.

I am using tomcat 3.2.2, and JCE 1.2.1., xerces_1_4_1.jar, cocoon 2.0 ...

I am using JCE to encrypt and decrypt some XML docs. The program to encrypt
and decrypt works in standalone mode. But when it is run within the servlet
env, an "java.lang.SecurityException: Cannot set up certs for trusted CAs"
exception is thrown at the the following lines of code: 
 Cipher cipherDes = Cipher.getInstance("DES/ECB/PKCS5Padding");
 secretKeyDesKey = KeyGenerator.getInstance("DES").generateKey();

(the detailed stack trace is pasted at the bottom of this email)

I have found that this exception has been reported to be thrown, by various
people, in the tomcat archives, due to classloader hierarchy problems,
JarURLConnection / WARConnection clashes etc.
I have found emails that allude to a fix, if some set of these jars are
placed in the tomcat-home/lib dir instead of the
tomcat-home/webapps/cocoon/web-inf/lib dir, but have not been able to locate
further info....(my JCE 1.2.1 related jars, xerces.jar, etc are all in the
tomcat-home/webapps/cocoon/web-inf/lib directory).

I think this, or a flavor of this problem is a known bug in tomcat...

Can someone, give me a workaround or a fix or a guestimate for the
resolution?

Thanx in advance..

Veena

P.s:
 The exception I get is as follows:
