Add a SSL Cert to Your Java Keystore

If you’ve ever had to add a SSL certificate to a java keystore, you know that the command is a little convoluted.  Here for your and my reference is the command…

 "D:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_22\bin\keytool" -import -trustcacerts -alias MyCA2 -file C:\MyCA2.crt -keystore "D:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_22\lib\security\cacerts" 

When promoted for the password, the default is “changeit”, and make sure to choose/type “yes” when asked if you want to trust the cert.
