Apparently I created 2 public keys with this entry

keytool -genkey -alias First_Java_Cert -keyalg RSA -keystore /home/ssl/keystore.jks -storepass passw0rd
-dname "CN=first, O=IBM, C=GB" -keypass passw0rd

keytool -genkey -alias Second_Cert -keyalg RSA -keystore /home/ssl/keystore.jks -storepass passw0rd
-dname "CN=second, O=IBM, C=GB" -keypass passw0rd

However, what I want to do is create one private key, and one public key

Could someone please post an example of this

Thanks

you just posted two examples :).

Both of those contain one private and one public key; you have to remember that the public and private keys are mathematically linked, so First_Java_Cert has a private key AND a self-signed certificate that contains the matching public key.

To demonstrate, lets export one of them.

Keytool IUI screen 1
Keytool IUI screen 2
following this, you should have two files, one is the cert (x509 with public key) and the other the private key.
