Good day.

I just deployed my web application on tomcat 6.0

It works fine, but what i need is https communication.
I got sertificate file (bought Thawte SSL Web Server sertificate). Now i want to set up my tomcat server to work with this trusted sertificate.

Could you please help me to set it up.

Thank you.

Well. That article shows how to set up tomcat with self-generated key (via key store). But i already got sertificate file. So how can i use it with tomcat server?

Hmmm. Are you sure you read it properly?
To obtain and install a Certificate from a Certificate Authority (like verisign.com, thawte.com or trustcenter.de), read the previous section and then follow these instructions:
................For Thawte.com go to: http://www.thawte.com/certs/trustmap.html......
