      Description

      There is an error in an old public deployment guide

      http://download.java.net/jdk7u8/docs/technotes/guides/deployment/deployment-guide/security.html
      The Root Certificate Authority certificate stores mentioned above are the union of the certificate stores in the files pointed to by the properties: deployment.user.security.cacerts and deployment.system.security.cacerts. By default deployment.system.security.cacerts points to the cacerts file in the jre/lib/security directory. deployment.user.security.cacerts points to a file that contains any additional cacerts imported into it using the Certificates dialog in the Security tab of the Java Control Panel.

      It is correct in the other old document:
      http://download.java.net/jdk7u8/docs/technotes/guides/deployment/deployment-guide/properties.html
      Note: This Java deployment guide describes features released prior to the Java SE 6 update 10 release.

      deployment.user.security.trusted.cacerts User-level Root CA certificate store.

      It is correct in all the current deployment guides:

      http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/jweb/jcp/properties.html
