Keytool command to generate a .P12 from a .JKS file

I am trying to generate a .p12 from k .JKS file using the keytool utility provided by JDK.

keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore mykeystore.jks -destkeystore mykeystore.p12 -srcstoretype jks -deststoretype pkcs12

However, this command works only with java 1.6 and above. I need to execute this command from a machine where I do not have JDK 1.6 or a higher one. All I have there is a JDK 1.5.

What would be the equivalent of this command if I have to run it from a JDK 1.5 installation.

Please provide some help here.

Thanks, Maneesh Sharma

You cannot do importkeystore on Java 5, this feature was introduced from Java 6.

You can refer to the documentation of Java 5 and Java 6.

If you are looking at importing, you can refer to the -import command (pre Java 6).
