We are building a JAVA Application that communicates data over secure HTTPS lines.
When we run our application from Eclipse/Terminal, via the command "java -jar <application>.jar", the application succeeds in all regards. However, when we run our application from "clicking" on the jar file, or when we run it from our bundled OSX Application files, we experience the following error:
sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
We have added all of the respective certificates to the keystore, and we have tested this extensively. I should also add that we have researched extensively this error, but it mostly resolved around certificate issues. As we can run the application successfully under certain scenarios, we don't believe this is the case.
My current hypothesis is that we need to sign our Java application and/or the OSX Application file generated from our ANT script.
Do any of you have any ideas on what is causing this error? Any ideas on how to fix it?
