Subject New FAQ - Using Web Start
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2003 00:26:01 GMT
Q: Can Axis be used from an application launched by Web Start
(http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/)?
A: Yes.  You will need to sign all of the jars in your application to
ensure that all code will execute with the proper security permissions.
The security model enforced by Web Start prevents the application from
making connections to servers other then that from which the application
was downloaded.
 
Please note there have been reported problems with using Web Start and
authenticating proxy servers.  Please refer to
http://nagoya.apache.org/wiki/apachewiki.cgi?AxisProjectPages/AxisProxy
for further information on using proxy servers with Axis.
 
Q: Where can I get more information on signing jar files?
A: More information can be found at:

Any comments?
