Pinned topic Issues with running applets

‏2014-02-10T18:29:59Z |

We're just starting up with Focalpoint (6.6.1) and I'm having a hard time trying to get the applets to work in any browser (IE9, Firefox26, Chrome32).  I have the latest Java 7 10.51.2.13 plugin installed.  When I try to open any content that runs a Java applet it complains about "missing required Permissions manifest attribute in main jar (tree.jar)".   Also, we created a couple of workspaces from some of the shipped templates but the workspaces appear rather empty and I couldn't find a lot of details about what's supposed to be in them and how we should go about filling them out with useful content.  I realize that services are recommended to set this product up correctly but I expected to at least see something useful out of the box.

    Where do I find this devfix1?  I don't see it on FixCentral.  6.6.1 is listed as the last fixpak.

    I logged a PMR and got given a link to download it. Hope that helps

    So I did log a PMR and got the fix.  However, it's still slow and only seems to work in Internet Explorer.  Tried with Chrome and Firefox and the applet never finished initializing.  Doesn't look good for the product in the eyes of our users.

    Strange, all my browsers work but I prefer Chrome (Version 33.0.1750.117 m), seems to be the quickest. 

    Wish I could help further, sorry.

    you can try to reduce the security for the JAVA option as mentioned in http://www.java.com/en/download/help/jcp_security.xml

    This is what I have done that has worked for me:

    In your Java Console > Security > Exception Site List

    Add your Focal Point Site

    Crome32 is working the best for me these days with FP.

    We already had the Java Control panel configured as above but were still having the issues.  However, turns out the issue is that we were running Focal Point under WebSphere 8.5.5 and apparently that platform isn't supported as well as advertised.  Switched to Tomcat and it all started working like a charm.

    Of course, that's not a preferred solution for us strategically but until IBM fixes the WAS support issues, we won't be able to go into production and will just continue kicking the tires on Focal Point on Tomcat.  I updated my PMR accordingly.

    That helped.

    I have the same issue of applet not opening and throwing error in 6.6.0 / Tomcat / Derby.

    Changing the java security to low and adding to exception list helped. Now Applet opens in Firefox 32, IE 10 & Chrome 39.
