OpenSSL may be as good a place as any to start. You will certainly get to see
the inner workings of a CA laid bare. Look at http://www.openssl.org. It has
no
relation to Java, however.

OpenSSL has all the necessary tools for creation of your own CA, for
generating

What is the distinction is between a CA and a CA server?
