https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8184671 filed. Please take a review.

"When keytool is operating on a JKS or JCEKS keystore, a warning will be shown that the keystore uses a proprietary format and migrating to PKCS12 is suggested. The keytool's -importkeystore command is also updated so that it can convert a keystore from one type to another if the source and destination point to the same file.”
