Problem with access to signed javascript file

5 New Member

I'm trying to load and write file on local disc drive using signed
javascript file. But I have experienced problem running this url:


in browser (Firefox) which simply won't work. I can't access to
html file embedded in jar file. My sample applet IO.java together
with IO.html was properly signed with valid certificate (real one,
no test certificate) by using signtool as is written here:

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/secu...d-scripts.html .

Is there someone who can help me or experienced same problems
with running embeded html file in signed jar file? Your help
is very appreciated. Thank you.

The description starts off talking about accessing a JavaScript file, but the URL is for a JAR file. Which is it you are trying to use? They are completely different un-related technologies. Are you trying to load a Java Applet in the page?

Meaning what exactly? Is there an error, is something happening that should not, or something not happening that should be?

Is something actually accessing it. I see where what I assume is supposed to be an applet being loaded in the page, but do not see where there is an attempt to access its contents.

Thank you for your reply.

I'm trying to open html file embedded in Java applet file. And then from this page control Java Applet itself. I think there is a logical error in my example, because of refence to JAR file in html file. But, basically what I need is to control Java Applet functions from html file with using javascript.

Originally I was trying to open html file with embedded Java Applet and then control it with javascript. But this doesn't work because I was trying to access signed (trusted) content from unsigned html file. So, I signed html file with Java class file and tries somehow access Java Applet functions from this html file. But when I put that weird link accessing html file embedded in JAR file into browser html file won't open :(. So, what is not working is that link to html file embedded in JAR file.

Here is the attempt to access its contents:
document.getEle mentById("text" ).value = document.applet s[0].load(strFile);

But this will propably won't work because of invalid JAR reference in html file:
<applet archive="IO.jar " code="IO.class" name="io" width="0" height="0"></applet>

Inside IO.jar is this IO.html which is trying to access IO.class. (IO.class and IO.html are together inside IO.jar) I assume archive="IO.jar " is wrong reference.
But first real problem for me is that this "jar:http://www.domain.com/secure-scripts...!/thepage.html" link won't open.

Hopes it is little clearer now ;).
