We are using jdk 1.4 webstart and safari browser on a mac machine.

Once the web start begins a jnlp file gets downloaded on to the desktop but does not get deleted. This happens each time the webstart begins thus the desktop is cluttered with stray .jnlp files each time web start is used.

Is there any workaround such that these files don't get downloaded at all or gets deleted once the web start closes?
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
