Default does SSL work with out CA signing ?

How can i test mutual authentication mode in SSL, when I didnt have CA signed certificate ? I just want to test the code whether it is working fine or not.

My code is almost ready, every thing is working fine with SSL when i switch off client authentication mode. But when i switch on client authentication mode then server produces an exception which says "SSLHandshakeException null cert chain", due to which the process does not complete successfully.

I had client certificate as trusted cert in server store and server certificate also as trusted cert in client store. The only problem i guess is that the certificate are not CA signed !!!

Is there a way to use SSL in examples or demos with out having a CA signed certificate ???

Thanx in advance,

Also pls note that both server and client certificates are self signed using java keytool.
