      Description



      Name: dfR10049 Date: 02/16/2004



      JNLP 1.5 spec states:
           The version attribute can not only specify an exact version, as shown
           above, but can also specify a list of versions, called a version string.
           A version string is an ordered list of version-ranges separated by spaces.
           A version range is either a version-id, a version-id followed by a star
           (*), a version-id followed by a plus sign (+) , or two version-ranges
           combined using an ampersand (&). The star means prefix match, the plus
           sign means this version or greater, and the ampersand means the logical
           anding of the two version-ranges. For example:

           <jar href="classes/MyApp.jar" version = "1.4.0_04 1.4*&1.4.1_02+" />

           The meaning of the above is: the JAR file at the given URL that either has
           the version-id 1.4.0_04, or has a version-id with 1.4 as a prefix, and not
           less than 1.4.1_02. The exact syntax and definition of version-ids and
           version strings is given in appendix A.

      So resource version "1.4.1_05" satisfies pattern from example should be
      accepted by JNLP client, but it is not accepted. I got the following
      error message:

      #### Java Web Start Error:#### Bad version in response from server when
      accessing resource:
      (http://volvo:34536/http_requests/VersionBasedProtocol/version_and.jar,
      1.4.0_04 1.4*&1.4.1_02+) - 1.4.1_05

      (I use JDK build 1.5.0-beta2-b37)
