      Description

      Using JWS 1.0.1 to run demos on http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart:

      It fails with error Message :

      An error occurred while launching/running the application.

      Title: SwingSet2
      Vendor: Sun Microsystems, Inc.
      Category: Download Error

      Missing version field in response from server when accessing resource:
      (http://dlres.java.sun.com/servlet/com.sun.jsc.javasoft.jaws.JNLPServlet/j2s
      e/j2re-native-win.jar, 1.3.0_02)"

      This is happening because javaws.cfg file has only one entry as shown below :

      javaws.cfg.jre.0.platform=1.4.0
      javaws.cfg.jre.0.product=1.4.0-beta
      javaws.cfg.jre.0.path=C:\\Program Files\\JavaSoft\\JRE\\1.4\\bin\\javaw.exe
      javaws.cfg.jre.default=0

      JWS when encountered the "beta" word is making an attempt to download the 1.3.0_02 version of JRE and is failing with the above error message during the autodownload process.

      If I remove the word beta and modified it to

      javaws.cfg.jre.0.product=1.4.0

      It works fine because then Java Web Start considers the 1.4 to be a valid JRE to run the demos, and does not attempt an auto-download.

      Please note that this issue was reported by one of the External developers using the javawebstart feedback alias.
