Subject Re: Get Friggin Verisign Working on Tomcat 4.0 Standalone How To - The Official Thread
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2001 00:50:55 GMT
If you haven't already done this, you might want to check out the keytool
documentation that comes with the JDK. The Examples section pretty much
explains how to do it. The next thing you need to do is a -import when you
get back the signed certificate from Verisign.
