tame Applet : Java Glossary
- tame Applet
An Applet intended to be run by a captive audience, usually within a single
corporation. Typically a network administration will do special preparation of all
client machines such as installing a certificate or policy file before the Applet can be run.
Sometimes the certificate is installed into the browser, sometimes into a separate
file (e.g. C:\WinNT\Profiles\username\policy.java). The author typically works for
the corporation. The Applet might be signed, self-signed or unsigned. If there are
any security decisions to me made to allow the Applet to run, the permissions are
granted by the network security administrator ahead of time.
