How to disable Java Login in Internet Explorer

How to disable Java Login in Internet Explorer

I am not 100% certain how this file works internally.

What has come to light, however, is that the file only applies to a
single Windows login session. If you logout and log back in, you'll
have to re-authenticate with Java the first time you use an applet --
checking its own checkbox to remember the password.

There is now a Java request for enhancement (#7006861) to make this data
apply indefinitely rather than having it remain valid only for the
duration of a Windows login.

RE: How to disable Java Login in Internet Explorer

We're not seeing that at all. Are you talking about release 23? We've installed this as pre-release and it retains the credentials forever...somehow.

Hmm....

Someone from the forum and I are both seeing the auth.dat still existing
in the new Windows session -- but having to log in again in the new session.

I guess I obtained a "new Windows session" by rebooting. Perhaps it
does not impact logout/login the same way?

Whether it is a new Windows login or rebooting of computer, it requires me to re-authenticate with Java at the first time it uses an applet.

RE: How to disable Java Login in Internet Explorer

I stand corrected. My tester was using http...where the problem never occurs. Using https we see the prompt suppressed for the current windows session only. After logging off windows the prompt does come back. That's really disappointing.

Agreed -- I was rather shocked to see this behavior myself.

I have requested an enhancement from Oracle to allow this behavior to be
disabled via the Java Control panel -- #7006861 in the Java bug
database. [I assume /someone/ wants the current behavior -- it's quite
intentionally implemented that way apparently.]

We are now getting the same error "getCacheDescriptor" error for 1.6.0_31 for upload of docs (because of applet issues). I hope that a ptc help desk call will find a resolution.

Have any of you guys tried 1.6.23 yet?


I get a Windows error 'getCacheDescriptor' failed error preventing uploading of a new document. I was getting this with 1.6.22 as well.

One solution is in the user Preference manager to change the upload mechanism to use the browser functionality. We haven’t tracked down the root cause for the ‘getCacheDescriptor’ error yet but the workaround is effective. You just lose the drag-and-drop upload capability.
