After you update your Java to the version 7 update 25, you may notice that every time you load the applet on your page, it writes the following lines to the Java console:

Missing Permissions manifest attribute for: <location of Uploader8.jar>
Missing Codebase manifest attribute for: <location of Uploader8.jar>

Also, if you have Java 7 Update 45, you may see the following warning in the security dialog:


The problem is reproduced with all versions of Upload Suite older than 8.0.48.


Java expects that the applet has certain attributes specified (Permissions and Codebase). Before Java 7 update 25 these attributes were optional and Upload Suite did not have it. Now they are obligatory and Java runtime complaining if the applet does not have them.

What are the consequences besides of the warnings?

At this moment, there are no known issues are caused by this issue. So currently you can disregard this problem.

However, it looks like Oracle will change the behavior of Java in future (presumably, in the next Java after Update 45 which will definitely happen not later than the end of 2013) and block all Java applets which don't have these attributes. That's why it is strongly recommended to update your Upload Suite as soon as possible.


The problem is fixed in Upload Suite 8.0.48. If you don't want to see these warnings, you should update your Upload Suite.
