I just downloaded the new Java 7 JRE today to perform some tests of my software. Unfortunately, I'm seeing a hang occur when attempting to launch a java webstart application using HTTPS with my own self-signed certificate. It seems to get stuck on the "Starting application..." | "Downloading application." dialog that pops up when the JRE is attempting to download the resources from the server. I can view my java cache and see that the JNLP file has been downloaded already, but the main JAR resource hasn't.
If I revert my JRE to 1.6_25, it loads my application just fine. Is anyone else seeing this problem? And if so, do you have any suggestions on how to fix it?
