Organizations which publish a publicly available Java applet should ensure that the applets are signed
This may require:
- Communication to the publisher of these applets (please call or email Amristar if you publish an iDelve applet – see below).
- Communication to BYOD (“bring your own device”) and non-managed systems of the impact of this change.
Deployment of RIA (Rich Internet Applications) by signing applets can be performed
- By any organization having the required skills and code signing certificates.
- By Amristar who will be maintaining such a capability to support customers with current product maintenance (again, information about this will be kept up to date here).
iDelve applications will not be affected if you are using a HTML5 version of iDelve maps
Once this change has been implemented the option to run unsigned applets (presented as a message such as the one shown) will no longer be supported by Java 7u51. A signed applet will be considered trusted and will run without requiring as much user intervention.
