We currently support about 3000 SC clients.

A big part of our clients prefer launching directly from a .jnlp file ( osx , Linux )

When launching from a .jnlp file it creates a security warning. The certificate is valid but there seems to
be missing a signed jnlp file that should be included in the jar file.

Check http://docs.oracle.com/j.../deploy/signed_jnlp.html

Is this something you are going to look at soon ?

This problem have been there for a long time and it really add some extra clicks to the experience launching the client.
We have several customers that complain that this is really a bummer as the competitors don't have these issues.

The solution could be found in the JNLP specification

Prefix your property name value with "javaws." or "jnlp.".
Only System properties starting with "javaws." and "jnlp." are consider as secure.

So removing the highlighted lines solved the warning. ( and changes the client a little bit )
