Starting with Java 1.7 release 40 and later, users can no longer allow the security alert on unsigned jar files to be overridden. The means that the users will need to make extra clicks to Direct Print reports.
The users get a java security message on the jar files, especially during Direct Print.
Later versions of the Java Runtime Engine will not allow unsigned jar files to run without a security warning being displayed.
Resolving The Problem
There are 2 possible solutions.
1. Use older version of java. Either 1.6 or 1.7 pre release 40.
2. Request hotfix for APAR IV44907, this fix signs the APAR using a trusted certificate.
Note: Java 1.7 is only supported for
- Maximo 126.96.36.199 and newer
- Maximo 7.5.03 and newer.
If your version of Maximo is not supported for Java 1.7, a hot fix will not be available.
