Policy file

The ZIETrans Toolkit includes a Java™ 2 security policy file that gives deployed ZIETrans applications the required permissions to operate when Java 2 security is enabled. Although basic ZIETrans operations have been tested with Java 2 security enabled, you might need to modify the policy file for some ZIETrans applications to operate with Java 2 security enabled. For example, the business logic in your application accesses system resources, or a keyring file or another file exists in a path not already covered by the policy file.

You can find the policy file for a ZIETrans application in the Navigator view of the ZIETrans perspective. Expand the EAR project for the ZIETrans application, and open the META-INF folder to find the was.policy file. ZIETrans copies the default policy file into every new project you create. If you want to modify the default policy file, it is located under the installed ZIETrans plug-in in the following directory:
<shared_install_directory>\plugins\com.ibm.hats_nnn\predefined\
projects\earProject\META-INF\
where shared_install_directory is the shared resources directory where you installed the ZIETrans offering using IBM® Installation Manager, and nnn is the version and build level of ZIETrans.
