NetBeans created a sample HTML and JNLP files to demonstrate launching my app.

I maintain an Apache based web sever. If I put all the files on my server in a single directory it all works great. Specifically, if I click the JavaScript "Launch" button, then I get asked to start the JNLP file in webstart.
However, on my client's web server, things don't work. Instead the browser merely displays the _contents_ of the .JNLP file rather than offering to run the JNLP in Java Web Start. I get the same behavior from both Firefox and Internet Explorer.

The only difference between the files is that I am changing "domain.com/dir" to the domain and directory to that of the server hosting the files.





the corresponding launch.jnlp file is

That is a really a good question. I am sort of embarassed I forgot to check that. The guy with root on that server is out of town for a few days. I will update this thread when he gets back.
