Dear All,

Can anyone have idea how to import Self-signed certificate? I want to connect a https URL having self-signed certificate. When i tried to hit from program get the following error:

"unable to find valid certification path to requested target"

I have the Certificate file.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Is this a certificate you want to use in the browser as a client certificate, or one you use on the server, so as to enable SSL?

If the latter, that depends on the server. E.g., instructions for Tomcat can be found here.
