ANSWER

A detailed procedure is described in the attached PDF.

MORE INFORMATION

The certificate chain is essentially a certificate path from signed certificate to intermediate to CA root certificate to indicate that the certificate is trusted.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Certification_path_validation_algorithm

In some environments, Java and other applications may have difficulty validating the certificate chaining path if only the signed cert is provided.

Chaining a certificate makes it easier for Java and other applications in some environments to validate the certificate validity path. A chained certificate has all of the certificate in the certificate path chain in one file.
