  • Java security hassles

    Question, how are other Java applet developers out there adapting to the increasing security hurdles that users face? We make two Java apps, SyMAP and TCW, and we love Java b/c it unifies backend/frontend/web functionality very conveniently and provides full UI capability, in contrast to say CGI. But it is getting difficult for our users because applet security popups get ever scarier and the default settings keep getting more strict.

    We are thinking of doing a proper applet signing through a CA - has anyone had experience with that? Also, is there an alternate platform offering similar capabilities?

    Use a webstart-based application ? . Eg: for IGV http://www.broadinstitute.org/igv/startingIGV

      Consider using HTML5

        Hmm, webstart...I thought those were supposed to use the same security policies as applets? I do get one popup from blast2go, which isn't bad. I'm pretty sure blast2go is signed with a CA, so maybe that's the best we can do.

        Regarding html5, it doesn't provide a good solution for the backend data processing does it? ( the unified codebase aspect that I mentioned in my post).

          Not a good practice in terms of security but is saving a self-signed certificate as "trusted", an option? Specially if you only have local users and do not need to worry about external access. Getting a real certificate is safer.

            by seqadmin



            Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

            Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
            by seqadmin


            New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

            A major leap in the field has
