Initially around 2010 a main jar Java Applet was implemented, build, and deploy using JDK/JRE 1.6.0_12; the main jar and third party jars were signed, everything work fine. The main jar java applet and third party jars work fine with JRE 1.6.0_12 thru JRE 1.6.0_18. However, with the introduction of the Mixed Code security starting with JRE 1.6.0_19, the main jar will not launch with JRE 11.6.0_27 unless the Mixed Code security is disable. We are moving our JRE from 1.6.0_12 to update 27. I am trying to fix this problem, that is, to allow the signed main jar Java applet and the signed third party jars to launch when the Mixed Code security is enable.

I have a main jar that has the Java Applet source code and several third party jars that are use by the main jar; for instance, activation.jar, log4j-1.2.13.jar, ojdbc14.jar, etc. Using keytool.exe in JDK 1.6.0_27 I created a new keystore that has the private/public key pair for the Java applet. Using jarsigner.exe in JDK 1.6.0_27 I signed the main jar and all the third party jars with the private key successfully; each jar has a signature file .SF and a signature block file .DSA (Digital Signature Algorithm). I exported the public key to be use to verify the signed jars. The Java Applet and the third party jars are in a web apps' webcontent/applet directory, when the applet is launch using the web app, the main jar and the third party jar are downloaded into the user's computer. The digital signature part works fine, the Java applet is able to launch and work successfully when the JRE Mixed Code security is disable. This still does not solved the Mixed Code security when is enable. I tried by deploying the main jar as Trusted-Only and Trusted-Library. In both situations when the Mixed Code security is enable, the main jar Java Applets is not able to launch, I get different exceptions but same results.

Any ideas on how to resolve this dilemma?
