Consume .NET SSL webservice from JAVA console app

I am trying to write a simple Java app in Netbeans to consume  or use a SSL web service written in ASP.NET...

I need to know, "How to setup the Netbeans console or command line project to work with a self signed cert from the web service server?"
The code for the service itself runs fine in JSP on TomCat 6.0, but adding the class to the console app generates errors.

I am using Netbeans IDE 6.5.1...

I am importing the following libraries...
import org.apache.axis.client.Call;
import org.apache.axis.client.Service;
import javax.xml.namespace.QName;
import org.apache.axis.encoding.XMLType;
import javax.xml.rpc.ParameterMode;

Whenever I run the console app I get the following:

To partially answer my own question:

I found the handy program called InstallCert on the web (which was easy and straight forward to use) and created the 'jssecacerts' keystore...

I added the 'jssecacerts' file to my '~/jre/lib/security/' folder in my jdk folder, and Voila! I progressed to the next error, which is...

One option is to just trust the SSL connection and not worry about the certificate... Here is some sample code I use a lot...
public void trustAllHttpsHosts() {
        // Create empty HostnameVerifier
        HostnameVerifier hv = new HostnameVerifier() {

            public boolean verify(String urlHostName, SSLSession session) {
                return true;
            }
        };

        HttpsURLConnection.setDefaultHostnameVerifier(hv);

    }

    public void trustAllHttpsCertificates() throws Exception {
        //  Create a trust manager that does not validate certificate chains:

        javax.net.ssl.TrustManager[] trustAllCerts =
                new javax.net.ssl.TrustManager[1];

        javax.net.ssl.TrustManager tm = new naiveTM();

        trustAllCerts[0] = tm;

        javax.net.ssl.SSLContext sc =
                javax.net.ssl.SSLContext.getInstance("SSL");

        sc.init(null, trustAllCerts, null);

        javax.net.ssl.HttpsURLConnection.setDefaultSSLSocketFactory(
                sc.getSocketFactory());

    }

    public class naiveTM implements javax.net.ssl.TrustManager,
            javax.net.ssl.X509TrustManager {

        public java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers() {
            return null;
        }

        public boolean isServerTrusted(
                java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs) {
            return true;
        }

        public boolean isClientTrusted(
                java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs) {
            return true;
        }

        public void checkServerTrusted(
                java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType)
                throws java.security.cert.CertificateException {
            return;
        }

        public void checkClientTrusted(
                java.security.cert.X509Certificate[] certs, String authType)
                throws java.security.cert.CertificateException {
            return;
        }
    }
