Java 7 Update 51 - Populating the Exception Site List on upgrade deployment?

So Java 7u51 is out with a new feature, Exception Site List. This is stored in C:\Users\username\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\security\exception.sites.

Any ideas on how to populate this for all users during the upgrade via Patch Manager? C:\Users\Public\AppData doesn't exist, so that's out...

Upcoming Exception Site List in 7u51 (Java Platform Group, Product Management blog)

Thanks

  • Carlos Perez has an excellent article on how to implement this here
    I set up our implementation to copy deployment.config, deployment.properties and exception.sites over to C:\Windows\Sun\Java\Deployment as opposed to referencing a network path on the domain, since most of our users have laptops.

    DEPLOYMENT .CONFIG

    deployment.system.config=file:///C:/Windows/Sun/Java/Deployment/deployment.properties

    deployment.system.config.mandatory=true

    DEPLOYMENT.PROPERTIES

    deployment.user.security.exception.sites=C\:\\Windows\\Sun\\Java\\Deployment\\exception.sites

    deployment.user.security.exception.sites.locked

    deployment.security.level=VERY_HIGH

    deployment.security.level.locked

    deployment.security.askgrantdialog.notinca=false

    deployment.security.askgrantdialog.notinca.locked

    deployment.security.notinca.warning=true

    deployment.security.notinca.warning.locked

    The EXCEPTION.SITES file contains the whitelisted sites.
