How can Java applets be run on enterprise managed computers with fewer security prompts?

This article applies to:
  • Java version(s): 7.0, 8.0

Java 7 Update 40 (7u40) introduces the Deployment Rule Set (DRS) feature for enterprise administrators to manage the Java applications that an employee can access.

The Deployment Rule Set feature enables an enterprise to create rules so that specific applications or groups of applications will be run, blocked, or subject to Java's default behavior.
  • Applications that match a run rule will be run without security prompts.
  • Applications that match a block rule will be automatically blocked.

An active rule set that is installed on the system can be viewed from the Security tab of the Java Control Panel.

The Deployment Rule Set feature is optional and is intended only to be used by an organization with a controlled computing environment.

For summary of the feature, see Deployment Rule Set Documentation
