For the default value (false) of silentInstallLicenseAcceptance in Java Web Start when an application's server side has changed, the user will be asked with a message box whether he/she wants to update his local application now or quit the application.
I would like to know if I can manipulate the message that Java Web Start should ask the user. I also would like to know if I can change the button from Yes/No to Upgrade Now and Upgrade Later.
Any API reference, idea, tutorial or sample code would be appreciated.

I think I asked a question too specific to websphere application server with java web start. Let me ask another question here.
When I start my thick client from desktop shortcut, java web start comes into play, checks the timestamps of the signed jar files in the server side and if there are updates available in the server, it automatically downloads the jar files.
My question is, can we show a confirmation dialog box to the user asking if he/she agrees to download the updates available in the server side? If the user agrees, the download will start but if disagrees, the application will quit.
This confirmation dialog box feature is similar to what is added for printing support in Java Web Start for Java SE 5.
Do we as a developer have control over this through java web start? So far my finding is we don't have the control. But I would be happy to know that I was wrong. [ October 24, 2007: Message edited by: Ashik Uzzaman ]
