When running Solar on an Eclipse release prior to 8.7.7.05 with Java 7 Update 40, users will be presented with a security warning similar to the following:
To continue launching Solar, the user should select the option, I accept the risk and want to run this app. This must be done every time Solar is launched.
Here’s an explanation of the change from the Java website:
Why don’t I see the option to select “Do not show this again for this app” in the security dialog for an unsigned application?
Starting with Java 7 Update 40, the option to select “Do not show this again for this app” is no longer available. Unlike previous versions a user cannot suppress the security dialog for an unsigned application and will have to select the option, “I accept the risk and want to run this app”, each time to run the unsigned application.
The Eclipse development team will be making changes to the way future versions of Solar are signed to prevent this security dialog from appearing.
