keytool generated certificate

I have just configured SSL on
and I am wondering if the certificate generated by the keytool command (the one that ships with the j2sdk1.4.2_X) is as good as a certificate from Verisign.
I am willing to accept the fact that users must add the certificate to their list of trusted certificates - but I am curious about the following:
1) Is the connection to the server (are the packets that are transfering from client to web server) just as secure as if the certificate were signed by Verisign.
2) Is there any real difference between the two certificates other than the fact that user must add the certificate to the list of trusted certificates since it's not signed by verisign?
I agree. Here's the link:
