I am using apache tomcat 6.0.20 server and secure certificates from GoDaddy. I have created the keystore using root cerificate, 2 intermediate certs. and primary certificate and its key and deployed on the server. But, I am getting certificate error on accessing the secure URL of the application. After doin lots of googling, finally found a loop hole that "A valid Root CA Certificate could not be located, the certificate will likely display browser warnings"

Please help if anyone worked on the similar task.
Thanks in advance.

You may try to import your vendor root CA / chain certificate to java cacerts,
which is located inside your java dir / "jre/lib/security".
Remember to use keytool which came with your JDK installation
(some linux systems has keytool from java alternatives in the $PATH).

i.e.
cd to your JDK installation
cd jre/lib/security
../../bin/keytool -help

default cacerts password is: changeit

quick doc:

good luck!
