Java Web Start is a technology developed by Sun Microsystems (now Oracle) to allow you to download and run Java applications directly from your browser with one-click activation. For more information on Java Web Start, see the Oracle documentation for Java Web Start.

Java Web Start requires that any JAR downloaded is signed by the software vendor. To support this requirement, Artifactory lets you manage a set of signing keys that are used to automatically sign JAR files downloaded from a virtual repository. For instructions on managing signing keys in Artifactory, see Manage Signing KeysManage Signing Keys
