Hi,
How do I generate a self-signed certificate and import it programatically using apis?

Would CertificateFactory.getInstance("X.509").generateCertificate() generate the certificate?

How do I import the generated certificate into the trust store via api?
I cannot use the commandline tool keytool.
But the commandline equivalent would be
keytool -import -v -trustcacerts -alias serveralias -file server.cer -keystore cacerts.jks -keypass changeit -storepass changeit

Thanks
Jamie
