The same getCodeBase problem seems to be occurring on the MacOS version too.

 

From: Mickey Segal [mailto:java3 at segal.org] 



I upgraded a Windows 7 computer to Java version 1.7.0_25 from 1.7.0_21.  A getCodeBase call in a signed applet now returns null.  In previous versions of Java, getCodeBase returned a URL that referred to the current directory (tested from Java 1.1 to 1.7.0_21 over the years).

 

Was this done purposely for security reasons, or is it just a bug?  

 

I will also test on Macintosh and report back on macosx-port-dev if it is a problem there too.
