    Hi team

    I am new to this forum. You have obeserved from jan-2014 due java security update we getting the error on running self signed jar files.

    I have tried to sign an jar containing applet applications with following steps
    1. i have created a keystore
    2. created code signing request(CSR) and purchased certificate from the certificate authorities.
    3. downloaded root certificate and intermediate certificates.
    4. later i have imported all certificates as trusted certificates into keystore
    5. with the help of keystore i have signed my jar containing applets.

    While running some code saying some codes not signed. But.But may be there is a problem with the manifest files with permission. please check my steps and help me correct method sign an applet. If you have code signing links with certificates or in personal help will be helpful.

    I hope you are using jarsigner to sign the applet. If you need help with any parameter you can tell.

    @akstheking: Welcome to the Forum! You've been a big help so far, and we appreciate it.

    Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    Here's a tip (more of a request, really) that might not be mentioned there:

    • Don't reply to "old" threads. A thread with no posts for 2 to 3 weeks is "old" and probably "dead." Let it rest in peace.
