Unable to properly deploy application for the 1st 'Ticket: Database Connection'

Strangely I’m getting javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: java.security.cert.CertificateException on deploy.
Does anyone know the cause of it and how it might be fixed?

Thank you in advance

Can you connect by shell to your DB?

Check this link

Ticket: Database Connection

By shell? Why?
I have no MongoDB locally installed - so far I have not seen a reason to install it as we make use of Atlas

Just to make sure your URI is correct in your configuration/env file
If its succeeds by shell then it could be issue with JDK or other area

well… if I can connect via Compass, isn’t it a sign that issue in another area?

Yes could be issue in other area
Have you verified your java/jdk versions are as per recommendations?

May be others proficient with this course can help you better
