For JRE 1.4.2, there are two certificate files are under deploy workspace

cacerts.janet is for testing purpose, so it should be removed from there.
cacerts did get distributed to $JRE/javaws/cacerts and used by Java webstart, we should remove this file too and ask Java webstart to use cacerts from j2se workspace, or loading from $JRE/lib/security directory.

EVALUATION javaws now need to look for cacerts file under jre/lib/security instead of jre/javaws dir.
