Description
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
All OSes

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
6u19 has not been placed at a location that can be downloaded automatically via a JNLP file (specifically: http://java.sun.com/products/autodl/j2se).

This is especially important since 6u19 fixes a serious web start error.

Replacing the "19" in the JNLP file with any other version works correctly.

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Under the "resources" section of the JNLP file, add:

<j2se version="1.6.0_19" href="http://java.sun.com/products/autodl/j2se"/>

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Download and install version 6u19.
ACTUAL -
Cannot find 6u19.

ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
"The application has requested a version of the JRE (version 1.6.0_19) that currently is not locally installed. Java Web Start is unable to automatically download and install the requested version. The JRE must be installed manually.

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Install 6u19 manually, then run JNLP file.

EVALUATION

Need to add 6u19 to the AllowedReleases file of the auto download servlet.
