Unable to initiate SSL GET or POST with cert

With a HTTP packet sniffer, I am able to view the GET and POST made by my application to a normal HTTP website. By when doing it for a HTTPS site that requires a certificate to be present, it doesn't work. Both GET and POST doesnt show up, but I am still able to view the response body string as a printout. As for POST to the HTTPS, no matter what, the website doesnt accept it. Any help?

I used this in my code together with the website certificate

System.setProperty("javax.net.ssl.trustStore", System.getProperty("user.home") + "/.keystore");

and if I don't use this, I will get an javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target error

The certificate should be present in the default trust-store or under the trust-store that you are specifying.
