I agree that in general this would be the preferable way of working with
the trust store however using self signed certificates streamlines much
better with my application and therefore my preference at this point is
to find a proper way of refreshing the trust store in the
JSSESocketFactory.

I'm still looking for a solution to this...
Thx,
Mike

If your processes allow, you would be better off creating your own
(self-signed)
root CA, using that to sign client certs and then adding your CA to
Tomcat's
trust store. That way you can add new client certs without any changes
to Tomcat.
