Tomcat .keystore file for SSL

Hi! I currently have 3 files being used for my Apache SSL configuration however, I need to configure Tomcat as a stand alone web server with SSL without the use of Apache. I have been doing some reading and have gotten Tomcat to work by using:

"keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA" which generates a self signed certificate.

Now for the next challenge:

I currently have the three certificate files I use for my Apache web servers. These are:

SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/
SSLCACertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/NetworkSolutionsCA.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/

My Question is how do I get these files to a .keystore format so that Tomcat will startup and show my signed certificate from NetworkSolutionsCA. Am I using the openssl tool? or do I continue to use the keygen tool.

Thanks for the help
