Hi,
I've a requirement to setup client application in web server and launch it using web start. I'm getting security problem which needs signing of the jars.

I tried to sign the jars using 'jarsigner' tool but how can I get the .keystroke file. Is it some thing trusted autority has to provide or we need to write that file.

Please give some hints to sign up my jar file.

Any help would be appreciated.
Moderators: Could please forward it to appropriate queue in case this is not the right one.

Thanks,
sam

Hi. I did a quick Google search on "signing jar files" and came up with this link to the Java tutorials:

http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/deployment/jar/signing.html

Hope this helps. Mark Dexter

Hi, you have to create a certificate, you can make a certificate using keytool, you have to excecute: "keytool -genkey -alias yourcertname" and follow the instructions, before, you can sign your jar executing "jarsigner yourarchivename.jar yourcertname"
