We're getting the following exception when calling the application (deployed on a weblogic 7 server):

JNLPException[category: Download Error : Exception: HTTP response 404 : LaunchDesc: null ]
at com.sun.javaws.cache.DownloadProtocol.doDownload(Unknown Source)
at com.sun.javaws.cache.DownloadProtocol.isLaunchFileUpdateAvailable(Unknown Source)

at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.handleApplicationDesc(Unknown Source)
at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.handleLaunchFile(Unknown Source)
at Source)
at Source)

I can get to it from my pc with no problems but when someone from another machine, we get the exception.

Any help appreciated, thanks!

Here's the launch file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<jnlp spec="1.0+" codebase="http://localhost:7001/evalHelper" href="index.jnlp">

<title>Eval Helper</title>

<description>Eval Helper</description>
<description kind="short">Evaluation Help</description>

I'd be very curious to know the solution, since I am experiencing
exactly the same problem (with an almost identical jnlp file).

I agree. Here's the link:
