Signing Jar files with a real certificate...

Hi,
   Although this seems to have been answered many times before, it has always been in bits and pieces and pointing to various websites.  I've managed to sign a jar with a self certificate and so forth but I really want to have a proper certificate - ideally one that doesn't cost $400 a throw! :)

  So what I'm asking is for a step by step guide no how to get hold of a legit certificate as cheaply as possible and then how to install that so you can sign jars with it. If it is possible to do it for less than $400 that would be great lol. I know some articles and answers hinted at it but I wasn' able to find the cheaper version myself....

  Because what I'm asking is a lot of work, I'm offering 500 points - but it will need to be a full answer, not just pieces to the puzzle...

Not aware of any cheap certificates sorry.
As far as doing the actual signing, if you use ant then its a breeze.

Hardest part is parting with the cash :)

You don't want my instructions, I'm terrible at explaining (plus its one of thos things you only do once in a blue moon). Which makes it worthwhile to document what you do for next time.

Thanks for the points :)
