JAVA Security

The good folks at Oracle are making Java security a priority. The result is that code which hasn't been modified in years, now needs to be re-compiled with additional tags in the headers and an expensive code-signing certificate installed. There are ways that you can tell your browser/Java installat...

It seems that JD starting with a ski kite and seeing a certain picture developed his version of a better ski kite that later became in use a ...

Java & Security

Anything that downloads Java code to your machine may have been impacted as various entities try to keep you safe in the face of recent Java vulnerabilities. When I couldn't run my own code from the net anymore I got a digital certificate and figured out how to sign it. See: http://www.crestlinesoar...
