Email2Case: PKIX path building failed:

I am trying to run the Email2Case and it is giving me following error message. Same setup was running till last month. Does v 9.0 no more supported? or I am missing anything? It getting service URL as :

Hi Prasanna, Does your configuration have valid client certification path?


I have implemented SSL handshake however not with Salesforce. Please have a look at below URL:




Thanks for the reply!


I have a solution which fetches the server certificate and add that to the key store and then I can configure Java app to use that keystore. But the problem is I am using the standard Email-to-Case JAVA application provided by Salesforce. And which was working fine untill last few days.
