      Description

      Name: gm110360 Date: 03/05/2003


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.4.0_01"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0_01-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0_01-b03, mixed mode)

      FULL OS VERSION :
      Windows 2000 Pro SP3

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      It appears that Sun is not updating the autodl site for webstart with 1.4.1_01 or 1.4.1_02. We really need 1.4.1_02 badly because it fixes the critical BSOD bug with ATI video cards (bug 4713003). Without it, most of the PCs in our company will crash when they try to run our application or Web Start.

      If I use the following JNLP, it installs 1.4.1, not 1.4.1_02.

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <jnlp
      spec="1.0+"
      codebase="http://myapp.com/myapp"
      href="myapp.jnlp">
      <information>
      ...
      </information>
      <security>
      <all-permissions/>
      </security>
      <resources>
      <j2se version="1.4.1*" max-heap-size="144M" href="http://java.sun.com/products/autodl/j2se"/>
      ...
      </resources>
      <application-desc />
      </jnlp>

      Also, trying a version="1.4.1_02" gives an error when trying to install/download saying it is not found. If it is installed manually, the 1.4.1_02 version works fine.
      The messages below are from Web Start attempting to auto install a JRE with the j2se version = "1.4.1_02":

      An error occurred while launching/running the application.

      Title: Enterprise Table Management (Dev)
      Vendor: SBC Inc.
