Description romeom 2011-12-07 15:59:18 UTC
The DefaultOutlineCellRenderer is making a check for the System property, nb.useSwingHtmlRendering, which causes an AccessControlException from an unsigned applet.  Out application is successfully using an older version of the outline jar.  The Manifest inside says the version is:
OpenIDE-Module-Implementation-Version: 200906241340
OpenIDE-Module-Specification-Version: 1.4.1

Upon attempting to upgrade to the version of the jar packaged with Netbeans 7.0.1, the AccessControlException began happening.  It also happens with the jar from version 7.1 as well.

The following is the stacktrace from a simple unsigned applet example (the code does nothing more than instantiate the DefaultOutlineCellRenderer):

Exception in thread "thread applet-PropertyTestApplet.class-1" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
	at PropertyTestApplet.init(
	at sun.plugin2.applet.Plugin2Manager$ Source)
	at Source)
Caused by: access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission nb.useSwingHtmlRendering read)

Comment 1 Martin Entlicher 2011-12-08 13:31:37 UTC
It's fixed by changeset:   208605:d7a5471edf3f

I'm making this a candidate for 7.1 patch.

Integrated into 'main-golden'
Log: #206096 Catch the SecurityException that can be thrown while reading system properties, or accessing class loaders.
Comment 3 Martin Entlicher 2012-01-31 13:48:36 UTC
Just catch (SecurityException se) is added, it should not cause any problem in patch1.
Comment 4 Martin Entlicher 2012-01-31 14:33:44 UTC

Comment 5 Jiri Kovalsky 2012-02-16 14:17:25 UTC
Martine, how can I reliably reproduce the problem in 7.1? Thanks.
Comment 6 Martin Entlicher 2012-02-16 15:16:30 UTC
Well, I didn't try to reproduce the problem. romeom, could you please verify that it works fine for you now.

It's not possible to verify this inside NetBeans IDE. You'd have to take the platform/modules/org-netbeans-swing-outline.jar and create some applet application, that uses the Outline.
Comment 7 Jiri Kovalsky 2012-02-27 13:21:15 UTC
I have not encountered any such exception during my 7.1.1 testing thus marking bug as verified.
