Configuring trust store for SSL client

Hi,

Would any one please be able to tell whether and SSL client can *programatically* configure its "trust store" , and *not* by using System.setProperty ?

In detail:
I'm writing a client, that connects to a server using SSL.
The server's certificate is *not* signed by a "well-known" CA (certificate authority). Rather, it's signed by my company's private CA.

Now, I *know* you can edit the default java trust-store file. Or you can use System.setProperty() to set the trust-store file.

But, is it possible to have finer control over the trust store ? In my case, the client has multiple threads, each thread requiring a different trust sotre - so a global "system property" is not good enough...

Thanks !
