Unable to launch Swing application on client machine using Java Web Start and JDK 1.4.2_11. The jar was properly signed and it was working fine with the earlier versions of Java. When I run the same application with JDK 1.4.2_11, the system simply hangs up. Please advise.

Enable the console window on the client machine and view the what logs. Also, you can enable Remote Debugging and step through the application to see what is causing your problem.

I Hope This Helps

Try enabling the console, to see the cause .
