Importing self-signed cert into Docker's JRE cacert is not recognized by the service
- A Java Service is running inside the Docker container, which access the external HTTPS url and its self-sign certificate is unavailable to the service/ JRE cacert keystore and therefore connection fails.
- Hence imported the self-signed certificate of HTTPS external URL into Docker container’s JRE cacert keystore. (after checking the $JAVA_HOME env. variable)
- Restarted the Docker container (using “docker restart” command), hoping that the service is also get restarted and pick the changes from JRE cacert. But this didn’t happen, the Java service still fails to access external HTTPS URL.
Any idea how a Java service running inside the Docker container pick the JRE cacert changes with new certificate import?

No: you need to import it into the Docker image from which you run your container.
Importing it into the container would only create a temporary writable data layer, which will be discarded when you restart your container.
