Description
It appears to be a regression in JRE8-b119 as signed applet failed to load due to certificate validation failure. 
The issue caused by  java.lang.ClassCastException: com.sun.deploy.security.X509CertificateWrapper cannot be cast to sun.security.x509.X509CertImpl

The same applet loaded fine if using JRE8-b118 

*** Tested Configurations
- x86 Win7
- IE 9, FF 25 ,GC 31
- jre 8-b118, b119

*** Steps to reproduce:
0) Install jre 8-b119
1) Enable the certificate revocation checks by default 
2) Use any browser to load the signed test applet:
http://www.oxygenxml.com/demo/AuthorDemoApplet/author-component-dita.html

Wait for applet resources to download and at the end, if you see the certificate validation failed due to java.lang.ClassCastException: com.sun.deploy.security.X509CertificateWrapper cannot be cast to sun.security.x509.X509CertImpl, the issue is reproducible

The problem does not occur if using jre 8-b118

The problem is in OCSPResponse.verify: certs.add((X509CertImpl) issuerCert); We incorrectly assume the certificate is an instanceof X509CertImpl. Since these internal APIs are called by deployment code which passes in their own subclass of X509Certificate, that is not always true. The fix is to use X509CertImpl.toImpl() to first convert it to an X509CertImpl.

All applets/applications using CRL/OCSP are failing(including Entrust test applets) due to this bug and everything works fine if I disable the OCSP/CRL check.

I do not think deploy integrated anything in b119. Wonder if something changed in jre. what's the full stack trace ?
