Goal

The SUN JRE 1.6.0_19 implements new security feature reporting a dialog during opening of Forms when untrusted (and thus potentially malicious) code is downloaded. The dialog shows the following:

  Java has discovered application components that could
  indicate a security concern.

  Name:  oracle.forms.engine.Main

  Block potentially unsafe components from being run? (recommended)

  The application contains both signed and unsigned code.
  Contact the application vendor to ensure that it has not been tampered with.


This Note explains diagnostic steps to identify root-cause and provides work-arounds preventing this  dialog to be shown.
