Hello,
i have  created a java applet that i'm trying to run directly from the browser
but it woudnt work on any browser - i get a security alert
i tried to reduce the security to minimum in the java console - it didn't help
my java version is greater than 1.7

i saw this online (is there a way to avoid it ? )
From Java 1.7.0_45 (or _51 not sure) Java Applets will require your code to be signed with a commercial certification authorities (one in the list java has by default), and well the price will depend on the certification authority, you can get them from $80

You can look at the possibility of self-signing it.

Hi,
i have read here:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/629483/Applets/java/Applet-won-work-due-security

that you can only use certification authority approved by Java , in opposite to previous java releases when you could self-sign it.
did i misunderstood ?
Can you please show the error. I believe I may know a way to help but I cant tell until I see the error.

Thanks

Hello all
Nothing helped yet.
Attached are the associated files.
I have an IIS 5.1 web server installed, but I get the same security warning even though java security is set to medium and the site 127.0.0.1 is in the exceptions list.

Don't want to bother you, but just to be sure, can you send a screenshot of the exceptions site list?

Where did you get your signing certificate from and how did you use it?
