This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Scenario: I have a digitally signed applet (with a self-generated certificate) currrently working fine. We're running some tests with a new proxy software, and with this new proxy when JRE is initialized it gives the error citeed in this topic subject.
Because the only thing that we changed is the proxy, we suppose that there is a different policy regarding access to Internet... my questions are:
- does JRE connects at startup to any external sites, for any reason ?
There's no stack trace at all. The applet is indeed working (if user press OK button in the broswser alert message ), and I can't see no error trace in java console... the issue arises just after JRE started to execute applet.
It seems that JRE tries and download a remote script which is actually blocked by our proxy server. Indeed, with previous proxy there was no JScript errors.
