FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Java Web Start in JDK1.5.0-beta2 is unable to start an application that works perfectly well in Java 1.4.2.
The application in question uses the all-permisions JNLP tag and as such is signed. It seems that something about the signitues on the Jars is causing WebStart to break.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1) open a link for a signed JWS application that requiers all-permissions
2) wait for application to download
3) Web Start will say "starting application..."
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
watched it popup warning dialog saying "Failed to validate certificate. This application will not be run."
ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
"Failed to validate certificate. This application will not be run."
java.security.cert.CertificateException: Check leaf key usage failed in certificate
at com.sun.deploy.security.CertUtils.checkUsageForCodeSigning (Unknown source)
there's no way to copy the exception from the exception dialog so i've had to type exception fragment in.
This bug can be reproduced always.
Release Regression From : 1.4.2
The above release value was the last known release where this
bug was known to work. Since then there has been a regression.
