Sun's JDKs allow both reading and writing of keystore type JKS. 
With an installed JSSE reading of PKCS #12 is possible:

         JKS  PKCS12
  read    x     x
  write   x     

If your goal is compatibility it makes sense to support PKCS #12 
as well since JSSE has been integrated into the JDK 1.4.

If your goal is to support and push forward open standards then 
perhaps the following matrix makes sense?

         JKS  PKCS12
  read    x     x
  write         x     

BTW: Does a specification of the JKS format exists? If yes: where? If
not: how is it possible that open source JKS implementations exists?
