Sorry, this is probably a really dumb question.

I have always signed my jars with a self signed certificate that i produce.

I have recently had my hosting company put an SSL certificate on the server.

There are a series of files *.episource.co.uk.ca *.episource.co.uk.crt *.episource.co.uk.csr *.episource.co.uk.key

i assume the .key is the keystore.

However i dont have a password or an alias that i normall generate when doing my slef signed version.

how do i apply the signtester.jar command with this proper ssl certificate?

Thanks in advance

you should have a password
But an ssl certificate for a server (https) is not i think directly the same as a signing certificate (but i could be wrong here)

The password i think is the thing you defined when you created that request for a certificate.

Yes, Johan is right, a SSL certificate is generally not the same thing as a code signing certificate.
And then you need to import your certificate into a Java keystore to be able to use it with the signtester.
Google "import code signing certificate into a java keystore" and you should find all sorts of tutorials for that...
