Keystore and Credential Store interplay in OWSM - 11g

One of the most common problems faced by customer's is the use of the keystore and it's interplay with the credential store.Here is a picture that describes these relationships.(Click on the picture for a larger image). The picture makes some assumptions in describing the relationship. Some of assumptions are:

a) the key used for signing and encryption are the same.

b) A keystore can have multiple keys and each key can have it's own alias. In the picture I show only a single key with alias "orakey".

c) The keystore being described here is a JKS keystore. Things can vary slightly for other type of keystores.

I hope to have a detailed How To that provides the larger picture and then shows these relationships in that context and this picture was created in the context of that How-To. However I think people will find this picture useful on a standalone basis as well. The <serviceInstance> is the entry you will find in jps-config.xml
