Java's WebStart and the Secure Sandbox

Posted by mrnorman [send private reply] at June 29, 2002, 12:55:05 AM

I've started writing an internet based program that requires a clients that connect to an outside server. Now, at first, I was discouraged to realize that the old applet forms would never run Swing-based GUI's such as JFrames and such, but then I found out about WebStart (which from what I read should fun Swing applications labeled as '.jnlp' and given the correct MIME type) Well, I read on to find out that in order to run in a 'secure sandbox', they can't have outside network connections. This is absolutely necessary for my application, so what are the consequences of writing a java WebStart application that doesn't run in this so-called 'secure sandbox'? Thanks.
