    Signing a class instead of a jar

    808981
      Would be possible to sign a .class file instead of a .jar file?

          Not and be able to use it as a signed Applet.

            If I can't sign a class, I have to find the way to include a .jar in my global project, because getting a jar from a class is very simple, but in my case the integration is not a trivial task.

            Thanks for your fast reply.

              Sorry but I really don't understand what you mean! How is getting a jar from a class simple? A class does not contain any jars!

                I am not explaining very well.
                I have a architecture who has a JSP file. This JSP loads an applet and I need the applet to be signed for a correct execution, but the applet is not a jar, it's a class. The JSP file uses a <jsp:plugin> in order to import an applet, but I wanted to avoid changing the code (it works properly) and uses an JAR as applet.

                <jsp:plugin type="applet"
                          code="myApplet.class"
                               codebase="/idp"
                               name="pinApplet"
                width="300"
                height="300">
                          <jsp:fallback>
                                    Authentication Form is not supported by the browser
                               </jsp:fallback>
                </jsp:plugin>

                I need myApplet.class to be signed, but I am obliged to change the code to include the applet as a JAR if I want a signed applet.

                  Correct. So do that.

                    It's what I going to do.
                    I only want to explain in detail the objective of my question: changing a class for a JAR is simple, but it supposes so many changes in the architecture I have made yet.
