Introduction:
The Applications Manager product jar files are signed with a Java code signing certificate that is renewed every two years. The previous certificate's validity period ended on June 8th 2017. The current certificate's validity period ends June 8, 2019.
Question:
What happens if my Java certificates are expired?
Answer:
If using a release of Java 7 update 51 or later, Java will not allow Applications Manager to launch with an expired certificate. 

A future release of Applications Manager version 9 will include new Java certificates with updated validity period.

Applications Manager version 8 has been out of support since March, 2018 so it will not be not be receiving a renewal to it's Java Certificates.


 
Additional Information:
Workaround 1:
Use Java 7 update 45 or lower since these versions do not include Java certificate checking.

Workaround 2:
Add the Java Web Client's Apache URL to Java's exception site list by opening Java control panel's security tab.
Java Control Panel


Edit Site List, choose Add and enter in the Java Web Client's Apache URL. The Apache URL for the Java Web Client is URL to Launch the Web Client but excluding all characters after the Apache Port. In this example, the client URL is "http://172.16.148.162:80/PHMAM8/Intro.html", so the Apache URL is "http://172.16.148.162:80". Select Continue to accept the risk.
Security Warning


Confirm that the URL is listed in the Exception Site List as seen below.
