Login JSP page error

I have JSP page that allows a user to type in their user name and password stored on LDAP server. This LDAP server is running on secure port 636. Thus, I must use ssl to make connection during authentication. I use JNDI to do this. But am getting following error (on Websphere Appliation Developer:

[10/9/04 15:28:55:181 EDT] 3f854eb3 SystemErr R javax.naming.CommunicationException: Root exception is unknown certificate

I have the certificate file, but am unsure how to tell the IDE the location of the certificate. Any pointers on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Since this question is about WSAD setup, I'm moving this along to the IDEs forum.

I think you need to add the certificate file/directory to the server's classpath. Go to the server perspective and open your server. Then look on the environment configuration tab.

yes, check your server manuals.
This is a Websphere server question, not a WSAD/Eclipse question

Jeroen is correct. Moving to our WebSphere forum.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
