Hi guys! I have an unsigned applet located in imageScanApplet.jar, that uses multiple third party jars. I want to sign the applet so i can use it without modifying java policy file. I have tried packing all the jars in one but obviously it doesn't work due to the manifest files in each jar. How can I achieve this??

The normal (and simple) solution is to sign all the jars with the same signature, and to deploy the applet and its jars in the usual way.

As far as i know and also tried, the signature works only for 1 jar Note that the jars are third party and as far as i know you cannot sign them if it is not permitted by the license....but I will try again an post back.

It's hard to tell what that means. Did you try something? What was it? What happened then?

True, but I think you would have a hard time finding a licence which prevents you from signing the code.
