Signed Java Applet

  Asked By: Ernesta    Date: Dec 30    Category: Java    Views: 580

I'm toying with the idea of a project that would download an
applet off of one server but that applet would connect to a different
server to get data. I'm pretty sure the SecurityManager will not
allow that applet to do that by default. But I'm thinking a signed
applet can.

I have worked with Java Web Start and know the procedures for
creating signed jar files for that environment. Problem with Web Start
is that it's an all or nothing SecurityManager.

So, I've got a few questions:
(1) is signing an applet done the same way as signing jars for Web Start?
(2) For an applet, where do I put the security.properties file and
tell the browser's JVM to use it?
