Oracle Removes Java Signatures, Breaking Webstart

It seems Oracle has decided in their infinite wisdom to remove digital signatures from the Java projects that they put into the open source community. Of course this breaks any application out there depending on Java Webstart using these libs. Looks like Java3D and JAI are currently affected — probably other APIs are as well. Oh Oracle! What are we supposed to do with you?

Best comment by Chrisq (894406): Oracle only said they’d keep it open source. They never said they’d let you use it.
