    Signing\Digital signature on JNLP file

    matbroughty
      Hello,

      I have signed my JWS app jar files with a valid certificate (COMODO) and this works fine but the user still receives a warning message that states:

      'Part of the application is missing a digital certificate'.

      Inspecting the warning indicates that the JNLP file isn't signed.

      My JNLP files are built and streamed on the fly via a servlet.

      It would appear this may be due to the property tags we use and that somehow magically prefixing the property name value with .jnlp or .javaws will help.

      http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/doingMoreWithRIA/settingArgsProperties.html

      However this 'prefixing' doesn't seem to work - at least it made no odds to the warning I got when I altered the JNLP creating servlet to generate the reource property tag values with a .jnlp or .javaws prefix.

      There is another old thread on this issue but, as with a lot of threads on here, OTT admin's have locked it with a snarky final comment for posterity.

      I would imagine that a lot of web start apps are signed so how have other people got around this? It isn't a showstopper but I would be happier if at least the JNLP warning could be removed.

      Cheers

      Mat

      p.s has anyone managed to get the 'insert a link' button to work on this forum?
