We have developed an applet in java1.1.x and signed it successfully. Now we want to port the same applet in java1.2. So we are using plugin for java1.3.x. For this we have to use object tag instead of applet tag. Now the signed cab we are using doesn't have any problem with applet tag.But it is not showing the signing certificate and also it is not showing the signed features using object tag which it do with the same cab file with applet tag.
So please help me if any one can. Thanking in advance,
Hi Kedar, Two things. First cab files were a Microsoft invention and are not supported by Sun (pluggin). You need to use the Netscape signing tools in order to get a signed applet. From the Sun FAQS:
Q: Does Java Plug-in Software support signed applets? A: Yes, Java Plug-in Software supports standard Java 2 SDK, Standard Edition v 1.3 signed JARs and applets signed using Netscape signing tools. See the Java Plug-in Software documentation for more details.
This link might help. Second, the JDK 1.3 pluggin supports the Applet tag so you might not need to use the object and/or embed tags. Regards, Manfred.
