Hello "navdeep navdeep"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

As to your question, the exact steps vary depending on which server you're using. The general approach for Tomcat, e.g., is described here. For a public web site you'd want to use a certificate from Thawte or Verisign, though, instead of a self-signed certificate.

Please re-read the request. We require a first and last name, and it must not be fictitious.

thanks,
Dave

Oh, and my answer was going to be very similar to Ulf's, but I hadn't considered adding a link to Tomcat.
