      Subject: Auto download of specific JRE
      Date: Thu, 17 Jan 2002 10:23:43 -0600


      Dear JWS Team,

      Several months ago I wrote asking about the JRE version auto download with
      Java Web Start. (You can see the correspondence below). I wanted our jnlp to
      auto download version 1.3.1, but Iwas getting errors. I was told that only
      1.3.0_02 was available for auto download:

      "The current status of the auto-download sight,
      http://java.sun.com/products/autodl/j2se, is early access.
      as a result only 1.3.0_02 is currently hosted there."

      Is this still the case? Or am I experiencing some other sort of error? We
      would really like to be able to switch our users over to 1.3.1 for the apps
      that we currently deploy with web start. I have run some tests, but I still
      get the same error as in August. Here are all the errors:

      Subject: How do I get Java Web Start with JVM 1.3.1?


      There is a bug in JVM 1.3.0 that causes problems with one of our
      applications. We need Java Web Start to run using the 1.3.1 JRE Right
      now we have to copy the 1.3.1 JRE into the 1.3.0_02 directory to get it
      to run the right JRE. This doesn't work very well for a web
      application. Can you tell me if there is a way to have Java Web Start
      download with the 1.3.1 JVM.

      Thanks,
      Rick Pray

      Request JRE 1.2.x to autodownload:



      I've got a web start app that's trying to request JRE 1.2.x from Sun's site and
      the following error is returned:

      The application has requested a version of the Java 2 platform (JRE) that is
      currently not locally installed. Java Web Start was unable to automatically
      download and install the requested version. The JRE version must be installed
      manually.

      Error Code 11 (11 Requested version is not available for automatic download)
      returned from server when accessing resource:
      (http://jsp.java.sun.com/servlet/javawsExtensionServer, 1.2)

      How can I configure Java Web Start on the client to fetch the appropriate
      version??

      Thomas,
      Thanks for that info.
      1.4 is now FCS so your excuses become invalid.
      I just tried again today. Still no support for 1.4.

      An error occurred while launching/running the application.

      Title: Club Cycom - Enjoy!
      Vendor: Cycom Limited
      Category: Download Error

      The application has requested a version of the Java 2 platform (JRE)
      that is currently not locally installed. Java Web Start was unable to
      automatically download and install the requested version. The JRE
      version must be installed manually.

      Error Code 11 (11 Could not locate requested version) returned from
      server when accessing resource:
      (http://java.sun.com/products/autodl/j2se, 1.4)

      --------------------------------------------------------------------

      We are using Java Web Start technology to deploy our client-side Java
      application. It has been a great experience of using this advanced technology.

      We have, however, noticed one drawback. Specifically, the auto-download
      capability of JRE, Java Runtime Environment, from Sun web site is not set up.
      This is one of those nice and useful features of JNLP. It helps user to obtain
      the correct version of JRE, if the required version on his/her local machine
      does not exist. Our application requires JRE 1.3 or above. If you can pass this
      request to corresponding group at Sun as a request, that will be valuable for
      our product deployment project.

      Again, thanks for all your help and support.


      Sincerely,

      - Shuguang Mao
