Starting with Java SE 7 Update 21 in April 2013 all Java Applets and Web Start Applications are encouraged to be signed with a trusted certificate. And starting with 7u25, all files must be added to JARs prior to signing. - Link
With that being said, it has seriously hindered our java applet being used to print labels to zebra printers. First there was the issues with so many security warning pop-ups with each label being printed. I think there were 3 warnings to print each label.
Now with a signed JAR file, we still get the security warning and it says the the publisher is unknown. JAR FILE LINK
. This file was signed by theJZebra Dev Team
as an update to fix the JavaSE7 update. We also tried signing the file with our own certificate but get the same results.
When the file is located on our server we get the 'Show/Hide Options' down at the bottom which will allow us to check 'Do not show this again for apps from the publisher and location above'. However, when this same JAR is being accessed from the customers server they do not see this. Is this due to some user access rights on their server?
Any help would be much appreciated.
