We have recently moved to Vista Business 32 bit and are encountering issues using Java based applications via the Internet.
Having looked at the Sun website I found the following statements :-
"On Windows Vista, there is a more restrictive sandbox for signed applets. A user has fewer privileges than if they were running on another Windows OS.
On a Windows OS other than Windows Vista, when running a signed applet, a user is prompted with a security warning dialog box and must respond. If "Yes" is clicked, the applet will have AllPermissions to run on the user's machine. This includes permission to write/delete a file from the local disk."
"On a Windows Vista OS, this is no longer true. Instead, AllPermissions is limited to Java Applet scope, not Windows scope. Because a process running in IE has a low integrity level, it will not be able to write/delete a file from a medium/high integrity level directory. A signed JNLP application can run only with medium integrity. Granting AllPermissions in a Java Web Start application only permits the Security Manager to allow operations that it would otherwise deny by throwing SecurityExceptions. It does not in any way elevate the permissions a user or a process has on the system. For example, a typical (non-admin) user might only be able to read and write files within their own home directory (unless other directories are specifically created to allow permissions to all users). "
The above highlgihts the permissioning issue that I think we are experiencing, however it does not state what directories should be targetted for permission changes.
I understand that some Java Apps may utilise their own directories, but I assume there are 'base' Java directories that I should be able to target first.
Can anyone provide me with a list of the directories I should be looking at?
We are using jre-6u14, Vista Business 32 bit, IE 7
Thanks for your help.
