I have an application which uses an jar:ed API which was signed by the developer. Now when I try to make it Web Startable, I get an error because of multiple signatures. This is supposed to be fixed in 1.5, but I need it to be runnable in versions 1.2+. Is this fixable or will I have to obtain permission to re-jar the API file without a signature?
I think it's possible to use jars signed with different certificates as long as they are put in different extensions. If you don't sign the jar it won't have full permission, you might need them. This however depends on your req.

Just remembered, there should not be classes belonging to the same package divided in jars signed with different certificates.
