Verisign Certificate Revoke/ Sign Standalone Forms and Discoverer jar with Self Sign Certificate

I was trying to get access to Oracle Fusion Middleware(Forms and Discoverer) application link and getting below error .... It's validity is out of date

It was happening with many companies and clients.

This started causing a lot of issues in Production. I found that the Verisign Certificate was revoked by CA and was not allowed to authenticate.

So I was having 2 options either to change the java control panel setting in the client systems.

or Sign the jars with a new certificate.

Option 1:

Enable below highlighted to check only the publisher certificate and not the chain of the certificate.

But there might be a security lapse when not checking the chain.

so I opted for option 2.

Option 2:

Sign forms and discoverer jar with self-signed certificate.
