You cannot use the current keytool as a CA. The version in Java 7 will probably support it, and for now you can write code using the X509V3CertificateGenerator from Bouncy Castle if you know what you’re doing.

if you have not got any solution then you may use following steps. I got it from some site and used in a year back, so don't remember the reference

Can i create CA in a machine (installed with openssl) and use the CA to sign the certificate in another machine ?

Yes, i don't think that this is not possible. But one thing you should keep in mind..this is just a dummy and self signed CA
