Description
a CA may issue a certificate to itself to support key rollover or changes in certificate policies. 

The SunJSSE validation looks for a self-signed cert with issuer.equals(subject), this is incorrect for self-issued certificate.

Need evaluation to support certificate chain that includes self-issued certificates.

EVALUATION

J2ME need the update, should be addressed at JDK 7 and JDk 6 updates.
