Hi all,

I was wondering that why jsse.jar and jce.jar are not by default put in jre/lib/ext folder? They are there in jre/lib folder of the JDK distribution but not in ext folder which makes it not usuable by default. We have to either copy or put symbolic link (in case of Unix based systems) so that it is visible to extension classloader that loads jars from jre/lib/ext...

Thanks

JCE and JSSE became part of the core platform in J2SE 1.4. They are no longer standard extensions and therefore don't belong in the jre/lib/ext directory.

Hi Julian,

Does it mean that those classes are in rt.jar now? I don't see it there in rt.jar for JDk1.4.2_03.

My Java1.4 code doesn't work if I don't include jce.jar and jsse.jar in the classpath explicitly or put them in ext folder...

Thanks
