I followed the following steps to enable the SSL for my JBoss AS 4.2,



When directing to the above URL in IE, I get the error page with the message "The security certificate presented by this website was not issued
by a trusted certificate authority."

What I'm doing the above is right way or wrong way, what things do I need to follow to avoid this?

Note that you are generating your own key, so to the world it is not a "trusted" key, it is just yours. So all browsers will display that message. The only way to not have that message is to send your key certificate to a CA (certificate authority) like Verisign. And for a fee they will authorize your key for general public consumption and you will no longer see that message.

Live or Temporary, you browser will only accept keys that have be certified by a Certificate Authority. No way around that.

Now that pop up only needs to pop up once, as one of the choices is to accept that certificate forever.

Yeah if you already have a signed certificate from a CA, then you can use that and will not get that browser popup.
