Description
Applet fails to load with 7u45 and 7u51. 

The error is:

network: Cache entry not found [url: https://nnnn.nnnn.com:443/nnnn/nnnn-signed__nnnn.0_nnnn.jar.pack.gz, version:  null] basic: exception: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException. java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2ClassLoader.defineClassHelper(Unknown Source) at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2ClassLoader.access$100(Unknown Source) ... Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2ClassLoader.loadAllowedCodebases(Unknown Source)   
Comments
There is no anything terrible in the recent 8u20 Deploy nightly. SQE OK to take the fix into CPU14_03 and public BPR.
