        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version " 1.7.0_25 "
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b33)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.25-b02, mixed mode)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Linux adc6140581 2.6.18-164.0.0.0.1.el5xen #1 SMP Wed Sep 2 22:48:20 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

        but the same results occur on Mac OS X 10.7.5


        EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
        Using released GlassFish 4.0

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        GlassFish automatically supports launching of Java EE app clients using Java Web Start. Starting with Java SE 7u25 these launches fail with the stack trace supplied below (from the console output or the trace file).

        REGRESSION. Last worked in version 7u21

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Enable the creation of Java Web Start trace files and/or set the console to automatically open during Java Web Start launches.

        Download GlassFish 4.0 from

        http://download.java.net/glassfish/4.0/release/glassfish-4.0.zip

        Unzip it into the directory of your choice (call it $INSTALL_DIR).

        Start the server using

        $INSTALL_DIR/glassfish4/glassfish/bin/asadmin start-domain

        Build the test JAR:
        1. Compile the attached Java code using " java TestClient.java "
        2. Build a JAR: " jar fce test.jar TestClient TestClient*.class

        Deploy the test JAR:
        $INSTALL_DIR/glassfish4/glassfish/bin/asadmin deploy test.jar

        Attempt to launch the client using

        javaws " http://your-host:8080/test?arg=Testing "

        There are quite a few JARs downloaded by Java Web Start during the first launch.


        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        Long list of warnings about missing Codebase and Permission manifest attributes in the console and trace file, followed by the test app displaying the " arg " query parameters ( " Testing " in the above example 'javaws' command) in a simple GUI list.
        ACTUAL -
        The trace file and/or the console displays the attached stack trace reporting a ClassCircularityError exception.

        ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
        Exception in thread " javawsApplicationMain " java.lang.ClassCircularityError: com/sun/enterprise/security/ee/PermissionCache
