While trying to establish an HTTPS connection to a Web Service, we get the exception:
PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
In this case I was trying to establish HTTPS connection to MS Exchange 2007 Web service. What this usually means is that the server is using a test certificate.

Below is the alternative way:
1 Generated truststore using http://blogs.sun.com/andreas/entry/no_more_unable_to_find

3 In the program, set the System property
