See the following topics for more information:

Mixing Signed and Unsigned Code Signed Java Web Start applications and applets that contain signed and unsigned components could potentially be unsafe unless the mixed code was intended by the application vendor. As of the 6 update 19 release, when mixed code is detected in a program, a warning dialog is raised. Mixing Signed and Unsigned Code explains this warning dialog and options that the user, system administrator, developer, and deployer have to manage it.

See Oracle Java SE and Java for Business Critical Patch Update Advisory - March 2010 for details.

Java Rich Internet Applications Development and Deployment Rich Internet Applications can be developed and deployed as applets or Java Web Start applications. The next generation Java Plug-in introduced in Java SE 6 update 10 provides powerful capabilities to applets.
