Hi, I'm facing the next issue. I'm working with a simple java application and a WebService. The Web Service operation returns a String which contains the certificate data you know:

----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----zzhjaY5469O....-----END CERTIFICATE----

What I want is to convert that String data into a x509Certificate. The problem is that whenever I try to execute the convertion, an exception is thrown and shows that the Certificate is not valid.

Here's the code I'm using:



The problem is that when I retrieve the certificate it's coming in one line like: sdjaskdlkasjdiji238918172912kjYhjhkuhukhku==
When I used that form of String it fails, even I've tried adding the ----BEGIN CERTIFICATE---- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----
But nothings happened, it still has error.

Somebody please could help me? I'd be really grateful. Thanks in advance
