Description
I tried last night build, and there is still problem with java web start.

I tried running the association test case, excessive relaunch is gone, but I found 3 problems by looking at the trace:

http://nicole1.sfbay.sun.com:8080/JavawsMustangIntegTest/association/association_test_un_signed.jnlp

1.  We are always trying to download .pack.gz , even for .jnlp file.  But the jnlp file does not have jnlp.packEnabled set.

2.  The above webserver seems to always return 200 for update check, so each time a new download is done.   But looks like we are not removing/invalidating previous cache entry, after we downloaded a new cache entry.

EVALUATION

regression caused by:

6668033 java_plugin/plugin2 New plugin applet freezes the browser occasionally

we are always doing update check with .pack.gz extension; and we fail to remove/invalidate old cache entry when we update a new cache entry
