Web Start 6 cache gets corrupted sometimes when loading app using native lib over slow connection

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      windows_xp

      Description

      Customer reported the following behaviour, that I was able to
       confirm experimentally on Windows XP SP2 and a slow ethernet
       connection (e.g. 1 MBps DSL line) using their application.

       The customer's Web Start application depends on Windows using
       native libraries. It depends on JRE 1.4.2_12 as Java runtime.

       When loading customer's Web Start application over a slow connection
       on Windows it sometimes spontaneously fails to load when using Java
       Web Start 6. It then issues the following error message in a simple
       message box with an OK button:

          Failed to Start application 'e-FX Dealer LIVE Client'
          null Unable to call main(...) function on class
          com.barcap.fox.commondeliveryplatform.DefaultFoxSystem!
          OK

       Trying to rerun without clearing the cache leads to the following
       Web Start error:

         Application Error: Unable to launch the application

         java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no WinInfo in java.library.path


       Java Console shows

       After clearing the Web Start 6 cache regarding the application a
       retry usually works fine to start the application.
       The problem was never observed for Java Web Start 1.4.2 or 1.5.
