I am trying to install an app using JWS.

What I did, I created a simple jar file,

add that jar file in jnlp file, like this:

<j2se version="1.3+"/>
<jar href="tray.jar" />

created a simple jsp with a link pointing to jnlp file.

Now what else should I do to install this jar file in my machine ? Please help

for simplicity, just put the jar under root folder

<jar href="" main="true"/>

in real, you won't do this. you will put the jar under


and use DownloadServlet to obtain the jar file and stream to client.
I agree. Here's the link:
