I just configured a SOAP client side (embedded inside a servlet). The configuration was pretty straightforward (JSDK 1.3.1_04). I followed these steps:
- configured JSSE, as per Sun's documentation
- validated the installation with a simple URL based piece of code accessing a static page via HTTPS
- saved the certificate from the server's CA (use Internet Explorer for that)
- added the certificate to the cacert store file
voila. I was using AXIS as the SOAP client library, and the server was IIS, with a self generated server and CA certificate.
