      Description



      Name: rl43681 Date: 06/29/2001


      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)

      Java Web Start should allow the jnlp file to specify that this application
      should have it's forceUpgrade value set to true. In two-tier development it
      may be catastrophic to allow an old client to run with an updated schema. In
      this situation, expecting users remember to *manually* edit their javaws.cfg
      files is neither prudent nor realistic.
