      There is a fatal regression with Java Web Start 1.6.0_14.
      With Java Web Start 1.6.0_13 all is working. The method getClass().getProtectionDomain().getCodeSource().getCodeSigners() return
      null for a signed jar file with Java Web Start 1.6.0_14.
      The same code in an applet is working with Java 1.6.0_14.

      The attached signed sample jar file use the follow lines:

                  ProtectionDomain domain = getClass().getProtectionDomain();

      And it print the follow output:

      ProtectionDomain (http://dell28/HelpDesk/classes/DialogTest.jar <no signer certificates>)

       <no principals>
       java.security.Permissions@ca0115 (
       (java.net.SocketPermission dell28 connect,accept,resolve)
       (java.io.FilePermission C:\Users\Volker\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\36\4de16a24-296b297c read)
       (java.security.AllPermission <all permissions> <all actions>)
      (http://dell28/HelpDesk/classes/DialogTest.jar <no signer certificates>)
      You can see all permsision are granted which means the certificate was detected.
      But there is no certificate. Their application need the certificate to verify the
      access rights of self loaded jar files.

      The problem seems more critical, if a jnlp application has more as one signed jar file
      then it also does not run. See the log output below. They only have one certificat,
      so be sure the certificate is identical.
