All incoming connections for "java" under Firewall for NonAdmins?

Hello,

Was wondering if anyone knew a script to allow incoming connections for "java" under the Apple Firewall?

We are trying to install the application Send Word Now. When you double-click the application on first run it wants you to deny or allow "java." If you click allow, it requires admin credentials, which will be a problem since our users are NonAdmins. I pinged the support group and they said we could have an admin start the app for each Mac.

I've tried @bbot script by adding Send Word Now.app as a trusted application to the firewall. But the Send Word Now kicks off a binary/agent on the desktop and still wants the deny or allow "java" connection.

I've also tried using Composer to capture the app and the .plist setting (com.apple.java.util.prefs.plist). But after deployment, it still asks for the "java" deny or allow.

Any help would be great!
