Tom’s JAVA Slide Show

Like all good toys it can be broken. Play with it.

Option A)

Provided Java is installed and up-to-date, download and execute the executable jar file (547 KB).

Option B)

Press the button to navigate to the Slide Show applet page.

Option C)

https://www.teanow5pm.co.uk/jtssjnlp.jnlp (2.2 KB)

Click the JNLP button or the link* to open Tom’s JAVA Slide Show with Web Start.

* If supported, clicking on the link launches jtssjnlp.jnlp and right-clicking (Windows) gives you the option of saving the file.


What Java version?

Java increases virtual memory usage.

To optimize memory management, JRE 6 (j2se version 1.6+) at least is recommended.

32-bit browsers do not support Java 7 and later versions on the Mac platform.

I recommend the latest version that supports HiDPI settings. (About time.) On Windows. (I don’t know about Mac.)


Java’s built-in security checks the applet, or Web Start application, for Web provenance.

Assuming the applet is blocked, but you trust TIG, download TIGcer.zip. (695 bytes)

  • locate TIG.cer within the Zip file you downloaded
  • open Java control panel
  • select “Security” tab
  • click “manage Certificates...” button
  • select “Signer CA” option in the “Certificate type” combo-box
  • import TIG.cer

The certificate is valid until 2039-10-21.

Installing the certificate allows your system to identify the publisher “TIG.Java Root CA”.
