Which Digital Certificate Management method to Choose?
Digital Certificate Management with Java Applet
is the original method for the system. This method requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the system, and Java Applet Plugin installed into the browser.
The Java Applet Plugin has to be configured to use the installed JRE. Many newer versions of major browsers may not support Java Applet Plugin.
Digital Certificate Management with Java Web Start is an alternative method which requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the system, with Web Start launcher (javaws)
configured to process downloaded JNLP files, either by file extension or by file content type.
These configuration steps are performed by standard JRE installation process. Java Applet Plugin is NOT required.
