Since I started playing with Java Webstart and recently with the Java Plug-in, I've been more interested in signing my code. I signed up for a free Thawte key so I can test and I'm going to see if I can somehow find a verifier here in Spain to bump up my privileges. The cool thing is that Sun has organized the two systems so it's basically the same signing process now, which is very nice.
Anyways, Dave from Roller is looking at including Ekit and is bumping into the cut/paste problem that unsigned applets have. What I'm going to try is signing the code to see if that helps. Here's Sun's guide to signing Java-plugin applets and it looks pretty straight forward. Pretty much exactly the same as signing a webstart app. Cool.
