You don't need a certificate for en/decryption, you need just the key. The Java API for this is called JCE, and you can find more information about it, including links to code samples, at

you can make use of this command below . this requires itext.jar
CertificateFactory cf = CertificateFactory.getInstance("X509"); Collection col = cf.generateCertificates(new FileInputStream("export.cer"));
I agree. Here's the link:
