Hi all,
I have a requirement of writing a java installer applet. Basically this class extends the applet and unzips a file (stored in the URL as the applet class) on the client's computer. To achieve this, I put this class in a jar file, then I created a self-signed certificate, and signed the jar file with the certificate. Now when I view the html page on Internet Explorer I get a security exception. I have seen applets, where browser brings up a prompt asking for trusting the certificate, and on clicking yes, the applet can be given full permissions. How is this possible. Can somebody help please?
