Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 1.4.2 to 7 [Release 1.4 to 7]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You imported a few certificates into the Java Key Store (JKS). If you print out the content of the JKS by using "keytool -list", the order of the certificates is unexpected. You have another keystore where you cannot see that issue.

You need to understand why the certificate entries of one of the keystores are being printed out in an unexpected order.

Changes

A few certificates have been imported into the Java Key Store.
