I am developing an applet that reads and saves file. So, the applet needs to be signed. I have a few questions on applet signing , pls advice.
1) The applet needs to be deployed for intranet use only. Is it necessary to buy the originial cert ? If yes, how much is the price of the cert.
2) Lets say I use test cert , and if it expires, does the cert needs to created or the expired test cert can be used ?
3) If the test cert needs to be created, does this mean that the files needs be resigned ,verified,etc ?
4)What is the validity limit of the test cert ?
5) Else than using the signingn applet, or changing the policy file, is there any other way/workaround ?
Pls advice. Thanks a lot
