self signed - import the cert into your keystore using http://yellowcat1.free.fr/index_ktl.html

expired - no real fix for this, other than changing workstation date/time to within validity range then bugging site owner to update his cert :(

To bypass this problem you can compile and run a small program called InstallCert. For more information and source code see http://blogs.sun.com/andreas/entry/no_more_unable_to_find
Works like a charm.
