> Having a problem with getting a key from one of keystores used by a web service client,
I've patched and build my own version of WSS4J that adds keystore-identifying information
to the exception thrown from CryptoBase.getPrivateKey() instead of only the looked up alias.
> This way, I were able to identify the particular keystore the application was looking
for key in.
> I'm attaching my patch.
> Note that similar improvements should probably be made to other methods in CryptoBase.
> The exceptions currently thrown by CryptoBase only specify the alias which was looked
up in a keystore. They may not be not sufficient in a complex set up with multiple keystores
because they give no hint whatsover about what kind of keystore with what contents was the
search performed in.
