Description Derek Horton 2014-06-11 17:04:42 UTC
Description of problem:
It is possible to configure the web ssl connector to use the Windows certificate keystore (access provided by the SunMSCAPI provider). However, the JSSESocketFactory checks for a keystore file. This check should likely be skipped when the connector is configured to use the Windows keystore.

Here is what the configuration looks like:
<connector name="https" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="https" socket-binding="https" secure="true">
<ssl name="https" 

This results in an error like this:
13:54:01,821 ERROR [org.apache.coyote.http11] (MSC service thread 1-5) JBWEB003043: Error initializing endpoint: java.io.FileNotFoundException: C:\Users\imauser\.keystore (The system cannot find the file specified)

You can work around this issue by creating this keystore (C:\Users\imauser\.keystore).

More info on using the Windows keystores can be found here:

Proposed patch

Simple patch that will not define a keystoreFile if we are using the Windows-MY or Windows-ROOT JSSE provider.
