Is signing of JAR necessary for using JNLP and JWS. When I tried to start the application while loading its throwing the following error msg

#### Java Web Start Error:
#### Unsigned application requesting unrestricted access to system

What could be the problem?
I have given all permissions and referring the jars from the system. Will there be any problem because of this ???

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us here on the ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. Initials are OK for the first and middle names but not the last. You can change it here

Yes, you have to sign all jar files before you use it in JNLP application.
Use jarsigner tool for the same.
