I am loading a signed jar file (named a.jar) by URLClassLoader.

After that, if I try to invoke some method that needs more permissions than sandboxed (I am trying this in applet), I am getting java.security.AccessControlException: (access denied). Why?
If I load this a.jar file by specifying it in applets tag "archive" attribute, everything works just great. How comes that URLClassLoader looses this signature information (and trust)?

Hi! It seems to I have similar problem. I solved it. Description here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7446009/signed-applet-loads-signed-jar-files-using-urlclassloader-with-security-issue
.

Basic solution is to create custom SecurityManager which will permit all you need and substitute system manager with yours.

For example, manager who permits all.
