Unsigned Java Applets in Webhelp

Mar 7, 2013 10:15 PM

Tags: #robohelp_x5 #applet

Robohelp creates the following files in the webhelp output:


  • webhelp.jar
  • whres.xml
  • whskin_papplet.htm


We have been using Adobe Robohelp since version X5 and in most cases, the above files were found in the webhelp output folder. These files are deployed in the application and I assume that they are required for the webhelp to work as expected.


I would like to get the following information:


  1. Are the above applets digitally signed by Adobe (since Robohelp version X5)?
  2. If not, what is the method to get these applets digitally signed by Adobe?


This information is very critical for us and I request Adobe to please help with details. Please let me know if you require any other information. Thanks in advance.

    Hi there


    RoboHelp X5 was the last eHelp version and was ever so briefly rebranded by macromedia. There is no way that Adobe would be involved in providing any digital signature for those old files.


    While I'm unsure as to the version where it began, I do believe that those files no longer exist in WebHelp output, so digital signatures should be moot.


    Cheers... Rick
