Support for Deployment Rule Sets?

I Just learned about an oracle feature called "Deployment Rule Sets", which provides added security on client PCs that run webstart apps. In a nutshell the client PC needs to have a signed xml file containing rules that are matched against a webstart app that is trying to run. The rule can permit/deny/restrict apps that match one of the rules.

https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/t ... rules.html

Is this supported in OpenWebStart?

Thanks!

No, this is feature is not implemented up to now as it had lower priority by our major sponsors in the past. As you can see at https://openwebstart.com/feature-table/ it is on the list of unscheduled features with no activities on this topic right now. The situation might change when we find a sponsor for the development.

Thanks for the response.

So OWS will simply ignore any Deployment Rule Sets, but will still successfully invoke webstart apps right?

Yes it works with most JNLP files.
