Description

Name: tn108358			Date: 06/22/2001


Java Web Start Console, v1.0 started Wed Mar 07 10:16:15 EST 2001
"About Java Web Start"  1.0 (build fcs-b20)

DEFAULT:
java version "1.3.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0-C)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0-C, mixed mode)

additional:
java version "1.2.2"
Classic VM (build JDK-1.2.2_005, native threads, symcjit)


  Description:

When there is an installation program (jnlp with <installer-desc/>) used and
javaws.cfg.forceUpdate=true is set in javaws.cfg, Web Start goes into an endless
loop when starting the application from a browser. It keeps running the
installation program over-and-over.

      The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is the standard protocol for transferring
files to and from remote
      machines running FTP server and client code. The FTP Bean Suite implements
this protocol,
      making it easy to include file transfer functions in your applications.
See the documentation
      included with this bean suite for complete instructions on how to wire
these beans together in a
      visual builder tool.
