Are wildcard SSL certificates supported under Tomcat 6.x?

I have a custom app that does not accept HTTPS -> HTTP port translation well (it throws a URL response of http: back into the browser), and i'm thinking my next best option is to attempt to install a certificate into tomcat instead, and connect HTTPS to the back end service directly. (unless someone has a better idea  on how to get the app to accept https even though the intranet connection will be over http).

Will tomcat 6.x accept a wildcard certificate?  I seem to remember finding that answer to be no in the past, however i cannot find a clear answer on the web.  To go with a non wildcard certificate, we'd be forced to purchase a new certificate specifically for this app, which i don't want to do as it is not used that much.
