Import a ssl certificate into a Jetty Java HTTP Servlet Web Server

Problem

How do I install a Rapidssl certificate in a Jetty Java HTTP Servlet Web Server
 

Solution

To install a your certificate on a Java server, perform the following steps:
 
Step1. Download your certificate
 
1. You will receive an email when your certificate is issued.
 
2. You require your certificate in PKCS#7 format, to download it in this format, review the steps in your issuance mail 
 
3. Copy and Paste your certificate to Notepad and save as a certificate.txt
 
 
Step2.  Import the Certifcate into the Keystore:
 
keytool -import -trustcacerts -file [cert_file_name_here] -keystore [keystore_name_here] -alias [keyentry_name_here]
 
 
Note: The SSL Port needs to be enabled on Jetty Java HTTP Servlet Web Server as well as on any firewall/s or router/s in place.
