keytool and private key

Could some one please post an example of a keytool creating a private key (and please explain what about the command makes the key private instead of public)

Thanks

there is no such command. you always generate a keypair, which generates both a private and a public key. the difference is that in the standard sun keytool, there is no way to extract the private key, you can merely export either a certificate or a CSR with the public key.
