      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      JRE 1.6.0 Update 3

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Any versions of Windows XP

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :

      For some customers on Web start 1.6.0_3, they are getting repeated downloads of their jar files. It appears to be an issue with the the way version 1.6 does caching.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :

      Invoke this app to bring up the login panel and then exit from login panel.

      Relaunch app a second time.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -

      The second launch should NOT result in another download.
      ACTUAL -

      For some customers, they are seeing a download everytime of the jar files.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :

      The only workaround right now is to revert back to previous versions of Web start.

      Release Regression From : 6u2
      The above release value was the last known release where this
      bug was not reproducible. Since then there has been a regression.
