I am trying to sign an applet within Netbeans without much luck and could really use some assistance. I can sign the applet (without the necessary manifest file changes) with jarsigner from within a cmd prompt so I know I have a good certificate.
This is what I have tried:
1. I am using Netbeans 8.0
2. I open the "Project Properties" window and select "Web Start".
3. I then check the "Enable Web Start" check box.
4. I click the "Customize" button within the Enable Web Start section which opens the Signing dialog
5. Within the Signing dialog I select "sign by a specified key"
6. In the Keystore Path I specify a path\xx.pfx file to be used.
In the Password and Key Password fields I specify a password.
In the Key Alias field I provide the alias I obtained from using the keytool command on the .pfx file.
When I build my project I get "jarsigner error: java.lang.RuntimeException: keystore load: Invalid keystore format" and that the "jarsigner returned: 1"
My question is does this process appear correct and is the issue I am having related to the fact that netbeans does not support .pfx or pkcs12 certificate types?
Thank you in advance for your time.
