Description Paul Stauffer 2015-07-28 16:28:24 EDT
We use APC model AP5610 digital IP KVM appliances for remote console access to many systems.  This appliance serves up dynamically generated .jnlp files via a web interface, which allow the client to connect to the remote server console.  These jnlp files have a number of security issues (missing permissions attribute, missing manifest entries; also the appliance itself has an expired embedded web server SSL cert that can't be changed), but until the release of  java-1.8.0-openjdk-, we were able to click through the warnings and they've worked fine.

With java-1.8.0-openjdk-, we can no longer connect, and javaws pops up a "Network connect error" dialog box.

Running from the command line with the "-nosecurity" option seems to have no effect on the behavior.

Downgrading to the previous release, java-1.8.0-openjdk-, makes everything work properly again.

Note also Bug 471413 from several years ago.  Same equipment, same symptom, apparently different cause.  Is it possible some additional stanza(s) need to be added to the ~/.java.profile file discussed there, to work around some new additional security checks that have been added in

I guess this is duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1245341

Do you mind to confirm, and if so close appropriately?
