Wildcard certificate problem

Can Tomcat 5.5 handle wilcard ssl certificates (specifically from GoDaddy)? If yes, how? If no, I've been beating my head against a wall for weeks in vain. Ugh. I have used the "java\jre6\bin\keytool" to generate the keystore file and the csr file. Then I submitted the csr to GoDaddy and received back some crt files. Then I imported their root, intermediate, and then the wildcard cert. However, when I access the site through a browser, I get a cert error saying that the cert "is not issued by a trusted certificate authority". When I view the cert details through the browser, it says, "Issued by: *.mydomainname.com" - same as the "Issued to" [note: I replaced our actual domain name in this post]. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this?

I am very happy to report that I found a resolution to the issue. The following article from Keith Willis at ECX Systems was the lifesaver: Tomcat 5 SSL – Install GoDaddy Wildcard Certificate JKS / PKCS12 ? What?
 
It's a tiny ad only because the water is so cold.
