I full-heartedly agree with your concerns. The lack of a vision for a 
modern deployment
architecture and the technical problems of the existing ones combined 
with the ignorance
of many developers will most certainly make this issue a further coffin 
nail of Java on
the desktop (and smart devices) in general and JavaFX in particular. 
This is really a sad
and frustrating issue.

With respect to the below mentioned example I am wondering
1. why someone signs such an example with a certificate which has 
already expired over a year ago
2.  why someone signs such an example at all and thus forcing everybody 
to run this example
with all privileges. If this was technically necessary (and the use of 
JNLP-services was no option)
then this is just one more indication of the insufficiency of the 
current deployment architecture.

It is simply a no-go if you force people to run something from the open 
Internet outside of a
well controlled sandbox.

LG, Michael
