I configured the keystore, Truststore and server certificate. keystore.jsk,truststore.jsk place inside the Jar. the client code as follows...

            TrustManager[] tms=getTrustManagers();

    // Call getKeyManagers to get suitable key managers
    KeyManager[] kms=getKeyManagers();

    // Now construct a SSLContext using these KeyManagers. We
    // specify a null TrustManager and SecureRandom, indicating that the
    // defaults should be used.
    SSLContext context=SSLContext.getInstance("SSL");
    context.init(kms, tms, null);


    // Finally, we get a SocketFactory, and pass it to SimpleSSLClient.
    SSLSocketFactory ssf=context.getSocketFactory();
    HttpsURLConnection.setDefaultSSLSocketFactory(ssf);
    return ssf;
  }
