Algorithm/headers used to check for new version

Does anybody know what algorithm is used to check if there are new versions of the libraries?
Does Java WebStart use particular HTTP headers?
I'm asking because I'm using a PHP script as a proxy for the libraries, but JWS doesn't pick up updates.

Hi,

URLConnection.getLastModified() in JnlpResource.class is used for that.

BR,
Cristian
