Hi all.

When a user launches a java web start application via a link to a website, the jnlp file that gets executed is the one in the user's browser's cache. What if I've updated my jnlp file, deployed it to the web server, and then a user clicks on the jnlp link, is there a way for Java Web Start to know that there is an updated jnlp file on the server and that it shouldnt use the one in the browser's temporary internet files?

thanks.

Normally it picks up the latest JNLP from the Server, unless you have set some caching parameters on your browser otherwise.

Eg, in IE you can say
Always check for newer versions of stored pages.


IMHO it is a browser issue....
