On a side note, it might be nice if the console would have support for CSR generation. If possible, why not for the whole process...

So I guess we should talk about how this should actually work.
In terms of auto generating the key I was thinking we would need to add a new attribute to the 'keystore' element under the security realm, something like 'auto-generate-cert-host="localhost"'. I am not sure what other options we would need, or how configurable we should make it, but as this is for testing/development purposes I don't think we need to expose full control over the certificate generation process.
In terms of the implementation we could just implement an SSLContext wrapper, that can do the generation and then create a 'real' SSLContext the first time it is asked to create and SSLEngine.
