 I am thinking of using some JNLP-based/Java Web Start code as a way to distribute some Swing application, but these questioning stops users are constantly asked, even if important for security reasons are a total throw off to users trying to articulate some idea in a useful way.
 How can I, as the administrator of an internal network, decide the defaults for all those questions and do extra customizations if needed for each user.
 Can you use the security manager or any other java technology to achieve this?
 I am a bit amazed that developers/people haven't rioted against those missing features in the spec. What am I missing?

I'm sorry, could you rephrase this statement: "these questioning stops users are constantly asked". It's not clear what you mean.
I don't think security managers will let you customize your app for difference users.
Without knowing specifics, it's hard to help. Could you give use cases of your app?
