Yes, that's it.

Meanwhile, I fixed the problem:
The compiler mislead me to the assumtion that it couldn't find the 
class "iaik.<something>.JButton".
The real problem is that your CertificateManager does work with Swing 
1.0.3 only.
Sun's changed the package names through Swing 1.1.x. As I read your 
Readme.html, I downloaded the "latest greatest" Swing, which was JFC 
1.1.1 for Java 1.1 (which I still use for Project requirements).
If you would mention in the docs that the CertificateManager runs with 
Swing 1.0.3 only, everything would be fine.

Just another problem:
I've written my own Certificate manager which exports certificate 
chains in PKCS#12. The algorithm is ok, since I used it to generate a 
user certificate and imported this into Netscape Communicator. With 
the same algorithm, I created three SSL-server certificate chains (for 
RSA, DSA and DH) in PKCS#12 format and tried to import the RSA-chain 
into your CertificateManager. That guy asked for the password (which I 
typed in), but barfs that the private key does not seem to match the 
certificate's public key...
Using the same cert chain with an older JigsawSSL version (2.0 beta 3 
I think) just works fine - the older Jigsaw was happy as it had found 
a trusted root, after reconfiguration of signers.pem ...
