Goal

With  the release of JRE 1.7.0_25 permissions and codebase attributes are expected to be included in the JAR Manifest File. Please see <Note 1563023.1>

Oracle provided jar files such as frmall.jar, frmwebutil.jar etc are included with these manifest entries through <Patch 17448420 >.  The manifest fix is included in 11.1.2.2.

If on 11.1.1.4 the manifest fix for Oracle provided jar files is in <Patch 17974937>.

Custom jar files such as jacob.jar, jar files containing icons, or others may not have these attributes included in the  jar files  so this note describes how to update the manifest.

Warning:  Oracle currently does not support re-signing or altering in any way the jar files provided by Oracle such as frmall.jar, frmwebutil.jar, etc.
