I wish I could award 1,000,000 points to anyone that can help me figure out an intermittent problem.  We have a system interface to an external company's server.  The connection uses SSL.  We have a key in our keystore and a certificate from the company.  In some cases the interface works fine.  In other cases we get a handshake failure.  The error message is "Uninitialized keystore." The code is written in Java.  We are using Java 1.6. I have SSL debug output where I can see the handshake failure.  But I don't know enough to understand why we are getting the handshake failure.  Can you help me track down the source of this intermittent problem?
