Help please ... I've tried a number of things with no success.

The backstory ...

I'm writing a soap-based web service app. It's sole purpose is to take requests from users, reformat the request for an internal system which is also soap-based running on an SSL encrypted server. I get a response back from the SSL server, repackage it as a response to the original user request and send it back.

The problem I'm having is for integration tests. In Eclipse, if I Run or Debug, my integration tests run fine ... but I do have to set up JVM parameters in a run configuration, I've got ...

-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=C:\apache\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\conf\tokenserver-keystore.jks
-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=Pass1word

The jks file contains all the info needed to talk to the SSL server.

The problem ...

When running Maven from inside Eclipse or externally, I get the following exception

WARNING: Interceptor for {http://xc.protegrity.com/ApplicationProtectorWS}ApplicationProtectorWSPortTypeService#{http://xc.protegrity.com/ApplicationProtectorWS}xcCreateSession has thrown exception, unwinding now

org.apache.cxf.interceptor.Fault: Could not send Message.

with the following ...

Caused by: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: SSLHandshakeException invoking https://tokenserver.protegrity.com/ws/services/ApplicationProtectorWS.2.0: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

I've tried defining MAVEN_OPTS with those lines pointing to the trust store in a maven_pre.bat file (Windows 7), to a .mavenrc file (when running Cygwin), I even defined MAVEN_OPTS explicitly in Window's environment variables ... but no luck. I still get the exception.

How do I define the trust store that Eclipse accepts but maven does not?

Thanks

You are going to have to configure Maven to also use the truststore. What we did is placed a jssecacarts file containing the certificates into java_home/jre/lib/security directory so that Maven will pick it up automatically. Or you could set up a run configuration in Eclipse, or add the -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore* setting to mvn.bat (or better yet, create a ~/mavenrc-pre.bat file and place the options in there).

Thanks ... but I've pretty much tried it all, I think.

My maven_pre.bat file located in my Windows7 home directory contains ...

set TRUST_STORE=-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=C:\apache\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\conf\tokenserver-keystore.jks
set TRUST_STORE_PASSWORD=-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=Pass1word
set MAVEN_OPTS=%TRUST_STORE% %TRUST_STORE_PASSWORD%
echo Done: MAVEN_OPTS=%MAVEN_OPTS%

When I tried .mavenrc in my Cygwin home directory it contained ...

TRUST_STORE=-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=C:\apache\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\conf\tokenserver-keystore.jks
TRUST_STORE_PASSWORD=-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=Pass1word
MAVEN_OPTS="$TRUST_STORE $TRUST_STORE_PASSWORD"
echo Done: MAVEN_OPTS=$MAVEN_OPTS

I tried setting MAVEN_OPTS as a user variable in Environment Variables with the value of -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=C:\apache\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\conf\tokenserver-keystore.jks -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=Pass1word

I still get the SSLHandshakException.

All works fine when I run the program as the truststore is setup on tomcat/conf and I can run the tests from inside Eclipse since I set up the truststore in the run configuration. It's just maven that's not cooperating.
If it makes any difference, I'm using Maven v 2.2.1

Thanks

An obvious question: you are seeing the "Done:" line being echoed when you run Maven and it contains the correct values? Also, double-check the java.exe command line in Task Manager to make sure that the options were passed properly.

The version of Maven shouldn't matter, it doesn't even get involved in this - the JVM networking classes do all of the credential handling.

One more thought - make sure that the alias and the DN for the certificate exactly matches the hostname of the remote server (check it with "keytool -list"). That is, both alias and DN must be "tokenserver.protegrity.com". I had an issue recently with someone who provided a certificate which a generic function name for their .Net web service and we had to generate a second certificate with the hostname to get Java to talk to that service.

Here's the result of -list ...

So, are you saying that the alias name elavon should be tokenserver.protegrity.com instead?

Yes.

Oh, and in my prior post, replace DN with CN...

Thanks ... I'll give that a try when I'm back at work on Monday.

I got it working ... I found the answer at https://blogs.oracle.com/gc/entry/unable_to_find_valid_certification

Downloaded and ran the InstallCert program and put the resulting jssecacerts in my ../jre.lib.security directory, re-enabled the maven-failsafe-plugin and my integration tests now run.

Thanks for your help.
