Mac and Mac PPC.

1. Run Weather app as a WebStart.  Get AccessControlException.  The error would not paste from the java console so I took a screenshot (attached).

Comment 2 Andrey Yamkovoy 2008-11-07 12:24:13 UTC
This is not a bug.
According with the thread you have the following options to run Weather on Mac:
"You Have two options. one is to sign the applet and second is to change the java.policy file of the user in jre/ext/security directory."

It can be fixed on our side by generating applet.policy file for the project which grant all permissions for the project jars and setting the jvm args in the jnlp 
file. By this reason I change it to RFE and reassign to Adam.
Comment 3 Adam Sotona 2008-11-07 23:07:39 UTC
There is nothing to enhance.
You cannot override applet policy unless the application is signed, otherwise it would be a big security hole.
If your application requires some secured classes or secured access, select the option to sign it. Then it will add
<all-permissions> requirement to the JNLP and it should work.
If you experience that it is still not working, please report it to the JavaFX Runtime to JIRA.

signing the jars resolves the issue.
