Hi all,

I am facing this dreaded Unknown Certificate error even after taking all known steps to make Soap call over SSL. This system is build on WebSphere 5.0 server. I have imported the Service Provider CA certificate into cacerts file. This certificate was also imported to dummyClientTrustfile in <WAS HOME>/etc/ folder as the SSL setting was pointing to this file.
I am still getting SSLHandShakeException with unknown certificate message. I tried to point to the cacerts file in the code & I tried to default to IBMJSSE settings. But the system is not reading the appropriate certificate file.
What else should be done to get around this problem.

Help me!

Thanks in advance.

For a web-tier endpoint you indicate you are using SSL by setting to CONFIDENTIAL, the transport-guarantee subelement of a security-constraint element in web.xml deployment descriptor:

You must follow application server-specific mechanisms to indicate that an EJB endpoint requires SSL. Often, these are application server-specific deployment descriptor elements for EJB endpoints that are similar to the web.xml elements for Web tier endpoints.

Thanks.

Got this problem solved by addjing a properties file on WAS server for outgoing http settings. Not sure about the details as our web admin made these changes. Will post the details once I know more about it
