Setting property 'keystoreFile' did not find a matching property. No Certificate file specified or invalid file format


I encountered this weird exception on X server even after configuring the Tomcat  configuration file properly same as i did for other server  Y where it is working fine.
Solution is mentioned after the exception log:

May 24, 2011 5:23:45 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.SetAllPropertiesRule begin
WARNING: [SetAllPropertiesRule]{Server/Service/Connector} Setting property 'keystoreFile' to 'C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_25\keystore\.keystore' did not find a matching property.

LifecycleException:  Protocol handler initialization failed: java.lang.Exception: No Certificate file specified or invalid file format
Solution:
Update the server.xml file as follows:
 <Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol" SSLEnabled="true"               maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true" keystoreFile="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_25\keystore\.keystore" keystorePass="changeit"           clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />

Please note that i changed the protocol from "HTTP/1.1"  to "org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol" 
This should fix the problem.
