After upgrading my workstation to jdk 1.5, I realized I lost all my keystores located in the previous 1.4.2/jre/lib/security. Now all the my test cases against unsigned ssl http ports flooded me with red strips in a fit of rage.

Next step is to go to a PC with an IE to export all the certs again. Wonder if there is another way to do this? I can't find an export function for certificates in Firefox running on linux. Next step is to add it one by one using the java keytool utility.

keytool -import -file eas.crt -keystore $JAGUAR_JDK13/jre/lib/security/
[cacerts | jssecacerts] -trustcacerts

Back to eclipse, change the correspoding property file to point to the new JDK1.5 JRE security directory. Then click the run button. Oh yeah! the world looks good in green.
