    How Can I import tomcat public key into S60 3rd Edition Emulator

    I have developed an J2ME app (unsigned Midlet), which is supposed to connect to a webserver through SSL (HTTPS). I am running the Midlet on S60 3rd Edn Emulator. Midlet tries to open a HTTPS connection, but encounters CertificateException.

    I think I need to install/import the public key of the tomcat (Jboss) web server. but I don't know how can i generate the public key for S60 3rd Edn Emulator and install the public key on the Emulator.

    webserver is basically a JBoss server with a small servlet running on it. I followed the following steps to enable the HTTPS handling in Jboss web server.
    1- I generated keystore for Jboss by following command
    keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore test.keystore
    2- I placed the test.keystore in /conf dir and updated the server.xml file to open a (TLS) port 8484 for accepting HTTPS requests.
    3- I am able to GET https://localhost:8484 through my windows IE.

    I am sure it is a small thing to many of you guys, I am new to J2ME... So please help me out I am banging my head for quite some time.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am also facing the issue. Are u getting an exception like this , I followed the same steps like you did. This is the code I used to connect to my tomcat by https.

    try {
    // Query the server and retrieve the response.
    HttpsConnection hc = (HttpsConnection)Connector.open("");
    SecurityInfo si = hc.getSecurityInfo();
    Certificate c = si.getServerCertificate();
    String subject = c.getSubject();

    String s = "Server certificate subject: \n" + subject;
    Alert a = new Alert("Result", s, null, null);
    mDisplay.setCurrent(a, form);
    catch (Exception ioe) {
    Alert a = new Alert("Exception", ioe.toString(), null, null);
    mDisplay.setCurrent(a, form);

    I got an exception like javax.microedition.pki.CertificateException: Certificate was issued by an unrecognized entity .

    I am sure we need to import the public key of the keystore into the emulator , I tried to import using keystore manager,but there are some confusions there.. I would be very useful for both of us , if someone could answer this.
