Steps for a User Running ExampleGame (Kim)

The steps a user, such as Kim, would take, are:

  • If you don't specify, the application will run unrestricted (policy files and permissions won't be checked).
  • The tells where the policy file is. Note: There are other ways of specifying the policy file. For example, you can add an entry in the security properties file that specifies the inclusion of kim.policy, as discussed at the end of the See the Policy File Effects lesson.
  • -classpath hs.jar;terry.jar specifies the JAR files that contain the class files needed. For Windows, use a semicolon (";") to separate JAR files; for UNIX, use a colon (":").
  • The policy file kim.policy specifies the keystore kim.keystore. Since it does not provide an absolute URL location for the keystore, the keystore is assumed to be in the same directory as the policy file.
