Warning messages using Oracle Java 7 Update 25 and newer with the Content Manager OnDemand Line Data Viewer Applet

Flashes (Alerts)


Starting in Oracle Java 7 Update 25, new security requirements have been introduced. When using the IBM Content Manager OnDemand Line Data Viewer V8.5.0.8 or older and V9.0.0.2 or older applet, the following security warning or error may be issued from Java:

Missing required Permissions manifest attribute in main jar.

This application is blocked in a Java security update because the JAR file manifest does not contain the Permissions attribute. Please contact the Publisher for more information.


The Content Manager OnDemand Line Data Viewer Applet shipped with the Content Manager OnDemand Web Enablement Kit (ODWEK) was updated to comply with the new Java security requirements. In addition, the applet is now signed using a SHA-2 certificate; a SHA-1 certificate was used previously.

To obtain the updated applet, either:

  1. Upgrade to ODWEK V9.0.0.3 and use the V9.0.0.3 applet.
  2. Upgrade to ODWEK V8.5.0.8 and download the updated V8.5.0.8 applet from IBM Fix Central.
    1. Use the following Fix Central product selections:
      Product Group: Enterprise Content Management
      Select from Enterprise Content Management: Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms
      Installed Version:
      Platform: Windows 64-bit, x86
    2. Download fix pack:

    Your ODWEK and Content Manager OnDemand Line Data Viewer Applet version and fix pack must match.
