Steps :
Install 6u18 b06 PIT
Launch javaws http://web-east.east.sun.com/www/tests/1.6.0_18/6800992/draw.jnlp

Application launches fine
Launch Cache viewer
Right Click on the application and click Run Offline
A dialog with title 'Application unavailable offline' and text 'The application has requested to go online .Do u wnat to continue is displayed ' with OK and Cancel Buttons.
Upon selecting OK  the application is launching.

Till 6u18 b04 the application launches offline without an additional prompt
Screen shot attached

EVALUATION this will be fixed as part of 6911785: javaws -offline launches appln without any error when the appln is not in cache

EVALUATION Not a showstopper for 6u18. Right-click launch offline via cache viewer is a very uncommon user scenario. Plus it works if user just launch via cache viewer by double clicking the application or select the application and click launch. It works offline too as long as JNLP has <offline-allowed/>.
