Maybe it has to do with this: New security requirements for RIAs in 7u51 (January 2014)

Java 7 update 51 (January, 2014) intends to include two security changes designed to enhance authentication and authorization for Rich Internet Applications (Applets and Web Start). The default security slider is being updated in a way that will block RIAs that do not adhere to these requirements. Note: this only applies to RIAs, and not to Java on server or desktop applications run outside of a browser.

Summary:
You are required to sign all RIAs (Applets and Web Start applications).
You are required to set the "Permissions" attribute within the Manifest.
Your application will be affected if it uses Java started through a web browser. Your application will not be affected if it runs anywhere outside of a web browser.

Read the page carefully, as you can see you will need to do some extra things because of more strict security rules for applets.

What are the contents of that JAR file ? Specifically contents within META-INF after you have signed the JAR?
