Hi All,

I used Apache Axis to generate client codes to access a web service hosted on Application Server. On running the client, I get the following error. Can anyone point out what I need to fix?

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
