Description
currently in JWS and JPI, whenever there is a updated resource hosted on the server, we will always download it to client during application/applet startup.

we would like to support a wider-range of update policy, such as background update; prompt user for decision, etc.

Comments
EVALUATION

suggested :
new Control Panel option:
deployment.update.prompt
to control if user should be prompted for application update.

JNLP Specification new element (sub-element of the <jnlp> element:

<!ELEMENT update >
<!ATTLIST update check (always | timeout | background) "timeout">
!ATTLIST update policy (always | prompt-update | prompt-run) "always">


current behavior is:
if offline-allowed:
    check = timeout
    policy = always.
if not offline-allowed:
    check = always;
    policy = always;

we would change curent default to check = timeout and policy = always in both cases.

The spec change will be covered by:
6250176: Update Jnlp Spec for 6.0
This CR is for the implementation.
