Java Question

Error - trustAnchors parameter must be non-empty

I'm trying to configure my e-mail on Jenkins/Hudson and I constantly receive the error

java.security.InvalidAlgorithmParameterException: the trustAnchors parameter must be

I've seen a good amount of information online about the error, but have not gotten any to work. I'm using Sun's JDK on fedora linux (not openJDK).

Here are a few things I've tried. I tried following the advice from this post but it copying the cacerts from windows over to my Fedora box hosting Jenkins didn't work. I tried following this guide as I'm trying to configure gmail as my SMTP server but it didn't work either. I also tried to download and move those cacert files manually and move them over to my java folder using a variation of the commands on this guide.

I open to any suggestions as I'm currently stuck right now. I have gotten it to work from a Windows Hudson server but I am struggling on Linux.


This bizarre message means that the truststore you specified was not found, or couldn't be opened due to access permissions for example.
