Java WebStart and Mac OS X 10.8

I'm a bit afraid that Java WebStart applications are encountering a problem with the latest OS X release because of the Gatekeeper settings preventing Java WebStart applications from running. Is it really true that if an application is not signed with an apple developer id that it will no longer be allowed to start unless changes are made to the Gatekeeper settings?

If this is the case then of course my question would be how can I additionally sign my webstart application built with maven on windows with a free apple developer id?
