Sub Tasks

Description
We should add version format support for a-z at the end of the version n.n.n_nn
(i.e. 1.2.3_45a) in optional package deployment. We added this a-z version option to Java as a valid version format. See bug 4636770 (JPI is not designed to support different versioning convention).

EVALUATION

Only N.N.N_NNL (1.2.3_45a) was implemented.

WORK AROUND

This would have to also consider Java Web Start as a deployer of optional
packages.  It does not make sense to support this for one and not the other.
The decision to implement this fix must be made for both.

###@###.### 2002-06-24

The Java Web Start team said they do not have a problem with this. See closed bug 4712638 (RFE: add to jws extension version format support).
