Looks fine to me.

For CSR, since there is already a "Note" there for these 2 options, you can add a few words about what -keystore and -trustcacerts can do.

Thanks,
Max

The test uses trusted certificates and checks no warnings on the weak algorithms to address the requirement described in the bug. I believe it does serve that purpose, and looks legitimate to me. There could be different ways of testing a functionality, and please let me know if there is a problem with the current approach.

It’s the ca (intermediate) cert needs to have it in this test scenario. I intended to leave it out in #160 to distinguish between server and ca certs.

There is no need to copy over the system cacerts, just make sure the file is created with the JKS storetype. We are thinking of upgrading the storetype of cacerts and it's nice to do this at a single place so we can modify it easily later.

It turns out that its caks.size() is zero detected at establishCertChain() in keytool/Main.java after root cert has been imported to that cacerts. At this point I’d like to suggest a separate bug be filed to cover the cacerts enhancement that you suggested.

This enables keytool to use the trusted certificates when verifying untrusted artifacts that are signed by CAs. It also incorporates Max’s change that consolidates the code to get the default location of cacerts keystore.
