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.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
