Don't think many others have run into this problem (its quite specific being on jdk 1.5 using webstart and client certificates) so if anyone can help me they are a life saver.
I'm attempting to use web start to launch a thick client java app. the app requires the clients authenticate themselves with certificates. Everything worked fine when the certs were kept in the browser and the app ran as an applet however things aren't so nice on JDK 1.5 and web start.
Web start lists the client certificates on launch (that it has imported from IE) and lets the user select the one they want to use. However it makes the user select more than once (4 times for some reason!) before failing with "SSLHandshakeException: Error signing certificate verify".
I assumed webstart would be able to handle this as it found the certificates afterall but it appears not to. Anyone got an idea what this error means, what I could be doing wrong or workarounds to try?
