Java fails SSL Handshake and Build



I recently bought a SHA-2 SSL Certificate G2 and installed. Work without issue until our clients who use Java indicated that they were getting ssl handshake and build exceptions.


I have searched the web and found that older versions of Java can work if one installs a cross over certificate and in some cases an intermediate certificate.


I have installed the  gd_bundle-g2-g1; gdroot-g2_cross; gd_cross_intermediate and gd_intermediate. I first installed our SSL then these fixes outlined here.


First I started with gdroot-g2_cross. Did not work. Then added gd_cross_intermediate, still same result. Basically I have now installed all of them and we are not getting any results.


Is there a combination or a single install that will remedy the situation?


Any help please.




I did a complete new upload and it looks as if the SSL is bundled with the required certificates for the fix.


So I am at a loss as to why our clients Java applications fail when connecting to our webservice.
