We have a webservice that is deployed in our dev environment and a new certificate was installed for enabling SSL. I tried the URL in browser and I can access the service. But now I'm trying to access the service from a unit test. I added the server certificate to my local client truststore and added the trust store and password as system properties as given below
But when I run my test, I'm getting the exception
Is there anything I'm missing here. I could not understand much from this exception, except that it could not find the certification. But this certification is added to my client truststore without any issue. I can see that in the keystore.
The certificate that you use with the web service has to be signed by a CA (certificate authority), either directly or indirectly.
The exception you see is because there is a failure to verify that a CA root certificate is in a certificate path starting with your certificate.
This article will tell you how to bypass this problem in a development environment:
