We have an Eclipse RCP app that runs under java webstart (based on eclipse 3.7.2). When I updated to Java 8 update 25, the app has quit running. No stack track, no errors, nothing. The JNLP is downloaded, all the jars update, the Java Console opens (we have that turned on) and the just shuts down. Nothing is written to the console. Have not been able to find anything in the webstart logs (errors/warnings/problems/etc.)

Seeing the same problem with Java 7 update 71/72, so we're assuming it's related to the security patches??

The app uses both SSL and user certificates for authentication and that would be the next step in the normal login/load process - after the java console opens - with 1.8.0_25 we never get the user cert selection prompt.

Just want to add our experience/problems to Jays post.. you are not alone Smile

Also having trouble with our java client launched by webstart. Console does not show any error, tested with the following java versions:

Java 1.6.0_45 .. ok
Java 1.7.0_67 .. ok
Java 1.7.0_71 .. FAIL
Java 1.7.0_72 .. FAIL
Java 1.8.0_20 .. ok
Java 1.8.0_25 .. FAIL

Adding the following lines to jawaws.policy does help and the client starts normally:

grant {
permission java.security.AllPermission;
};

I know this is not an option for productive installations. But maybe it helps to narrow the reason for that problem.

We were able to solve the problem by adding the following line to our .jnlp file:

<property name="osgi.parentClassloader" value="current"/>

as referenced @ https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=439759#c26

This fixes the problem for both 1.8.0_25 and 1.7.0_71/72.
