[BUG] Applet games don't run anymore
« on: March 27, 2014, 22:08:18 »
Hi,
I know that Oracle miserably change the applet security (http://lwjgl.org/forum/index.php/topic,5206.0.html) and even your applet demo is broken: http://lwjgl.org/applet/.
Since the nighty jars don't work, can you provide a fresh signed lwjgl_util_applet.jar in order to get our applet to work again? Or isn't that simple?

Thanks in advance.

I think the problem is the following line in the MANIFEST.MF file:

Code: [Select]
Application-Library-Allowable-Codebase: true
According to the specs, "true" is not a valid entry:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/jweb/security/manifest.html#app_library

If you omit it or use "*" instead, it should work. However, this requires to resign the whole thing.

I would greatly appreciate, if this could be fixed.

cheers!

Hi,

Has there been any progress with fixing this yet? All applets have been broken for quite a while now and I'd love to make an applet version of a game I've been working on. Does anybody have a workaround for this? I tried using earlier versions of lwjgl but that introduced another bug that also stopped the applet running.

Cheers
