So this is an error you get from Javamelody? I thought you were
getting this on the server you were monitoring (i.e. the main webapp,
not javamelody).

Forgive my ignorance (I have no experience with Javamelody), but is
this how you add a webapp to javamelody for monitoring?

I thought you needed to configure your own Tomcat server to *use* an
SSL certificate. It seems that you were already doing that without a
problem (because most clients seem to be happy with the certificate
chain presented by the server).

If Javamelody won't connect, it's probably because Javamelody is using
some keystore that doesn't have the intermediate certificates that I
was discussing. You should check the Javamelody documentation for what
keystore it uses, or how it can be configured to use the keystore of
your choice.

At this point, I think you need to go to the Javamelody folks and ask
over there: this does not seem to be a Tomcat-related problem at all.
