URGENT - Keystore & Certificates

I am developing an application using Jbuilder9 Enterprise and the application needs to read from a https://... site.

For this I am finding out that I need to setup a certificate, keystore etc..

However I am getting increasingly frustrated by the complexity of this.

Can some please kindly explain to me the exact steps that are needed to install a certificate (free) allowing me to create a browser to https:// site.

At the moment I am getting the following error message:
java.security.cert.CertificateException: CA certificate does not include basic constraints extension

I am really looking for an idiot proof guide/directions.

Thanks

I believe the problem is in your web server. So what kind of web server are you running?

I am not using a web server.  I am just downloading from a https:// site.. here is my code

   HttpClient httpclient = new HttpClient();
    GetMethod httpget = new GetMethod("https://www.verisign.com/");
    try {
      httpclient.executeMethod(httpget);
      System.out.println(httpget.getStatusLine());
    }
      catch (Exception exe)
      {
        exe.printStackTrace();
      }
    finally {
      httpget.releaseConnection();
    }
