Lunch Application via Java Web Start

I am going to use Java Web Start to distribute a Java application. The application includes two jar files: Client.jar and log4j-1.2.13.jar. When application starts up, error message displayed: Found unsigned entry in resource: http://localhost/JavaClient/ log4j-1.2.13.jar. The exception is: com.sun.deploy.net.JARSigningException.

The Java runtime is JRE 6. I don't have the source code of the Java application.



Here is jnlp codes:

Following the instruction, I change the content of MANIFEST.MF. If Java Caching is enabled, I see the exception (I can "download" the log4j-1.2.13.jar from address so it shall not be access rights issue). If I disable Java Caching, signature exception happened again.

I understood so that that whole thing (all four lines )
should be removed:

Name: org/apache/log4j/
Implementation-Title: log4j
Implementation-Version: 1.2.13
Implementation-Vendor: "Apache Software Foundation"

Don't know if I am correct

I think log4j-1.2.13.jar is "unsigned" while Client.jar is signed by developer. I don't have source code, is there any way to "sign" the jar files? Or log4j-1.2.13.jar must be signed using the same private key as Client.jar?

They are alos mentioing that some older Java version will work without this problem.
see here:

which Java 1.6 update are you using?

dev_yinzAuthor Commented:
It is verson 6 update 30. (build 1.6.0_30-b12). I cannot down grade the Java version. Otherwise, I have to configure a lot of clients and most of them are overseas. I will see if there is any possible to sign the log4j-1.2.13.jar.

for_yanCommented:
certainly you can try to sign, though it sounds a little bit funny but why not try:

I think  this is also a good description of  jar sigining:

for_yanCommented:
you can also look at this trail if you encounter problems - it follows the siging process rather closely:
