I've signed an applet with
keytool -genkey -validity 3650 -keyalg rsa -alias ddkey
keytool -export -alias ddkey -file ddcert.crt
jarsigner planner.jar ddkey
jarsigner -verify -verbose -certs planner.jar
but loaded from the webserver with...
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<APPLET CODE="mypack/Planner.class" ARCHIVE="planner.jar" WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%">
<PARAM name="customer" value="mycustomer">
.... the applet only works with firefox and not in Internet Explorer. Even with a new certificate, IE does not ask me whether I trust the applet or not. Only a blank screen with a red cross..
In spite of having configured "show Java console", the Java console is NOT opened in the task bar, so I cannot add further log messages....
Why do the two browsers behave differently?? How can I fix it?
Appreciate any hint :-)
When I see "it doesn't work in IE" I always have to ask: Windows 7? 64 bits system? Are you sure you are running this in the 64 bits internet explorer? The default IE is the 32 bits version, so if you don't have a 32 bits Java runtime installed applets are not going to work at all, signed or otherwise.
