I'm trying out the Web Start auto loading new application feature.
After putting in a new jar file in my web server, it still load the old version unless
I remove off the application at the Java Cache Viewer. I'd even waited
for 30min incase it only load after certain interval.
The problem is fixed after I removed this element from the jnlp file:
The versioning approach you suggested is working as well.
Thanks for the advise.

Good to know your issue has been resolved. If you remove the update tag, Java WebStart will use the default value "timeout" for updates, means while starting your application WebStart will check for updates, if there are updates the latest files will be downloaded and launched. Value "background" will check for updates in the background, the program launch will not be interrupted. If there are updates, We Start will keep a note of this, the next time you start your application the latest files will be downloaded.
