I am trying to test out TestNet3 and I have a keypair generated using Java crypto library.

The private key is 23F847360E1EB348A212F443C633058080A8EB9F05AD132F8B82D51FE672EADD and the public key is 044C8478229D9A139803AB0889617ECB6421191F3D891D0817D6A6CFD43BCBAA206FA9CE781E1C48764D8D1D0CE58DC6DE76C1B5F97CBCB5C9F01960DEAD3E192F with the compressed form as 024C8478229D9A139803AB0889617ECB6421191F3D891D0817D6A6CFD43BCBAA20.

I derive a TestNet address resulting in msmVKMjAz7UdJSfkpvv3z4RMbt7pxocqZw and decided to use it to sign a transaction hash of C46A8842187BB3642463B020D63462800FFB45791284404A965EF027D9F3B473 using SHA256withECDSA mode.

The following R and S is generated as the Signature:

Component R: 038646375A34E4DA028B44362D1745870D019782245EF094AA788D17FD69F1D3
Component S: 00F29287B9A8913A9D751ECB33B32EEEB5614BAA32CF714811E29AE07F0886D4E7

My signing code is using BouncyCastle as the Java JCE provider as shown below:

System.out.println("BC Sign Begin");
System.out.println("=============");
X9ECParameters CURVE_PARAMS = CustomNamedCurves.getByName("secp256k1");
ECDomainParameters CURVE = new ECDomainParameters(CURVE_PARAMS.getCurve(), CURVE_PARAMS.getG(), CURVE_PARAMS.getN(), CURVE_PARAMS.getH());
ECDSASigner signer = new ECDSASigner(new HMacDSAKCalculator(new SHA256Digest()));
ECPrivateKeyParameters privKey1 = new ECPrivateKeyParameters(((ECPrivateKey) keys[0]).getS(), CURVE);
System.out.println("Curve A Coefficient (a): " + privKey1.getParameters().getCurve().getA().toBigInteger().toString(16));
System.out.println("Curve B Coefficient (b): " + privKey1.getParameters().getCurve().getB().toBigInteger().toString(16));
System.out.println("Curve G Generator X (Gx): " + privKey1.getParameters().getG().getAffineXCoord().toBigInteger().toString(16));
System.out.println("Curve G Generator Y (Gy): " + privKey1.getParameters().getG().getAffineYCoord().toBigInteger().toString(16));
System.out.println("Curve Order (n): " + privKey1.getParameters().getCurve().getOrder().toString(16));
System.out.println("Curve Cofactor (h): " + privKey1.getParameters().getCurve().getCofactor().toString(16));
System.out.println("Private Key In Use: " + ((ECPrivateKey) keys[0]).getS().toString(16));
signer.init(true, privKey1);
BigInteger[] components = signer.generateSignature(input1);
System.out.println("Component R: " + BinUtils.toHexString(components[0].toByteArray()));
System.out.println("Component S: " + BinUtils.toHexString(components[1].toByteArray()));
String compStrs = BinUtils.toHexString(components[0].toByteArray()) + "+" + BinUtils.toHexString(components[1].toByteArray());
System.out.println("Components String: " + compStrs);

The output:

When I use BitcoinJ to transmit my transaction to the TestNet, I am getting the following errors:

Your compressed public key is wrong. It should be 034c8478229d9a139803ab0889617ecb6421191f3d891d0817d6a6cfd43bcbaa20. How did you construct it?
