      Description



      Name: nt126004 Date: 10/04/2002


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      Java web start 1.2

      FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
      Windows XP
       
      ADDITIONAL OPERATING SYSTEMS :


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When using the html/js code snippets provided to enable
      the one-click download feature in jws 1.2 (Windows only),
      the download only includes the java web start program, not
      a jre, even though the documentation clearly states (from
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/docs/guide/jws/relnotes.html#autoinstall):
       
      "They will click through one security dialog box, which
      will automatically initiate a download of either Java Web
      Start alone or Java Web Start plus Java Runtime
      Environment 1.4.1"
       
      However, the step-by-step setup guide states (from
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/docs/guide/jws/developersguide.html#autoinstall):
       
      "The cab file does not contain a Java Runtime Environment,
      so you will need to have a Java Runtime Environment
      installed before using this auto-download feature"
       
      If that is true (no jre included) it would render the
      one-click feature virtually useless, and I would request
      an enhancement to include a jre in the download (like the
      first quote). If it is not true, please correct the bug by
      including one.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1.Set up a website follwing the instructions in
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/docs/guide/jws/developersguide.html#autoinstall
      2.Using a jre/jdk-less windows machine, run a jws program
      from the website
      3.Jws crashes because no jre is installed

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      The one-click is expected to include a jre in the download
      (if the developer requests it by setting up the website
      appropriately), but jws will always download without one.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
