The documentation in the /j2re1.4.2_01/javaws/javaws-license.txt contains version number of "1.2" and the word "pre-release" and in the I18N (README_xx) html pages has incorrect version number of "1.2".  The correct Java Web Start version should be "1.4.2"

SUGGESTED FIX This file should be removed from the windows bundles. the line: $(WINRESDIR)/javaws-license.txt in make/common/Rules-windows.gmk should be removed, to stop copying this file into the distribution. this is left over from when javaws was contained in it's own installer. ###@###.### 2003-10-13
