Disable JWS Auth dialog

I am using a Java swing application with tomcat. When using JNLP an authorization dialog is launched. I am using my own and can't seem to find a way to disable it via the jnlp deployment file. Does anyone know of a configuration paramter to set in the jnlp deployment file to disable it?

Thank You

Are you signing the jar file?

As far as I know, because of the sandbox and security restrictions, there is no way to avoid the dialog. However, on the client machine, I remember seeing a setting in the java control panel where it offers a choice to not always allow, prompt user or never allow jnlp. But then this would mean you would have to manually set it on all the client machines.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
