You didn't import your private key into Java keystore.

Use openssl to create PKCS#12 keystore containing your private key (prvkey.key), your certificate
(sslcert.crt) and sertificate chain (cacert.pem).

Then, import PKCS#12 keystore to Java keystore using keytool.

Verify Java keystore with:

   keytool -list -keystore /tmp/.keystore -v

You should see one PrivateKeyEntry, with certificate chain to trusted CA.
