java web start security

I have a signed application that is not executed in the "all-permissions" security mode. So I can set permissions in the javaws.policy
When Java Web Start runs with the JRE 1.3.1 there'is no problem (permissions are activated), but when I use the JRE 1.4.1_01 there is no permission.
I try to change the java.policy of the JRE 1.4.1_01, but always the same problem.
Any idea ?

try to see if the java web start IS USING the SAME JRE that u r changing policy file for.
u can go to the java webstart control panel and see if there are multiple JREs. for simplicity/ease make sure that u only have one JRE checked (selected) which u really want to use in Javawebstart app.
and change that JRE's java.policy.

I have already done this.
I change JRE with the Web Start manager.
The Java Web Start log file contains this :
Environnement d'ex´┐Żcution Java 2 : version 1.4.1_01 par Sun Microsystems Inc.
It's in french, but you can see "version 1.4.1_01"
or "version 1.3.1"
So I'm sure the JRE I use.
I agree. Here's the link:
