Hi,
If I deploy jnlp file on my web server and tell users to log in to webserver and click on jnlp all the time.. Is it going to behave same as copying the file on the pc( manuall) and clicking it?

Effectively yes. That is one of the administrative advantages of webstart.

Hi,
If the users are supposed to use https to start the jnlp file there are scenarios in which it will fail IE cache bug.

Hi,

Here is the bug:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;812935

one will actually be forced to save the file on disk in order to run it.

Specify that "Saving encrypted pages on the disk" is allowed on IE security settings and don't prohibit the caching using http headers ("Pragma" "no-cache" & "no-store" & so on).

BR,
Cristian
