javakey : Java Glossary
I have left this tombstone entry for historical interest.
Was a Java version 1.1 application for creating and managing
digital signatures and signing Applets so they can get past the security restrictions
of the sandbox. This Javasoft standard for Applet-signing is only honoured by Hotjava
and Appletviewer, but not Netscape or IE (Internet Explorer),
unless they use the Java Plug-In. Replaced by keytool and jarsigner in Java version 1.2.
