How to automate Keystore generation using the java keystore tool? w/o user interaction

I am trying to automate keystore generation using the Java keystore tool. The command I am using is :

keytool -keystore keystore -alias jetty -genkey -keyalg RSA


But after this command, user is required to enter certain inputs as follows:

Enter keystore password: password
What is your first and last name?
[Unknown]: jetty.mortbay.org
What is the name of your organizational unit?
[Unknown]: Jetty
What is the name of your organization?
[Unknown]: Mort Bay Consulting Pty. Ltd.
What is the name of your City or Locality?
[Unknown]:
What is the name of your State or Province?
[Unknown]:
What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
[Unknown]:
Is CN=jetty.mortbay.org, OU=Jetty, O=Mort Bay Consulting Pty. Ltd.,
L=Unknown, ST=Unknown, C=Unknown correct?
[no]: yes

Enter key password for <jetty>
(RETURN if same as keystore password): password


Instead of the user entering these values , is there any way of providing these values without user interaction ,either within the command or through a script?

Thanks

Answer

Try this:

keytool -genkey -noprompt \
 -alias alias1 \
 -dname "CN=mqttserver.ibm.com, OU=ID, O=IBM, L=Hursley, S=Hants, C=GB" \
 -keystore keystore \
 -storepass password \
 -keypass password
