Hi, Our application uses Webstart to launch applet. Application throwing "Corrupted jar xxx.jar file and unable to launch application" exception when we use 'HTTPS' protocol and resources are secured (URL restricted - form based authentication (cookies)).
It is working with 'HTTP' and resources are secured (URL restricted - form based authentication (cookies)).
It is also working with 'HTTPS' when no URL authentication( form based).
*All jar files including applet one are signed.
Environment : WAS4.x (Linux),JRE1.3.1, Jre/Webstart 1.4.2 on the client side (browser/user machine).
- Has anyone seen this problem before ? - I appreciate any help on this.
Althought jws can handle https is has no clue about the authentication cookie the browser is holding. So, you must do a "hole" an mark the jars as unprotected. Otherwise when jws tries to download the jars it will receive the login page back tries to interpret that as a jar, obviously fails - "Corrupted jar error.".

Thanks for the reply.
My jars are protected(either case HTTP or HTTPS) site needs authentication. I was wondering, Why it is working when I use HTTP, still jars requires authentication. User always login first when they hit the site, then they click on 'Launch button' to launch the jnlp file/jar downloads. Any thoughts ???
