Running Java Applets with Expired Certificate

On November 1st, 2019, FileCatalyst ended support for Java Applets. As such, FileCatalyst no longer re-signs, supports, or distributes Java Applets. Furthermore, FileCatalyst no longer provides any support for legacy products that still use or embeds Java Applets.

Java Applets were replaced with TransferAgent technology. TransferAgent appeared in v3.4.1 Build 7 which was released on September 24th, 2014, at which point the Java Applets were deprecated. The last build of Java Applets occurred 3 years later in v3.7.1 Build 10 (July 10th, 2017), and after 5 years support was concluded on November 1st, 2019.

However, it’s still possible to run old FileCatalyst/Unlimi-Tech Java Applets with expired certificates.
