      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The JNLP file which works perfectly fine if I use java webstart from Java 6 u 45 stoped working when I downloaded java 8 u 112.

      I have tried to find the root of the problem and one cause seems to point to https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8146336 where the PAC file parser is not working as expected. My JNLP address is http://servername.abc.mycompany.com/someFolder/myJnlp.jnlp (I have changed the names because of privacy issues but the format is exactly the same).

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 6u45

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Just click on the jnlp and I get this exception all the time. Only way to fix this is to use 'Direct Connection' in 'Network Settings', but this is not a option for us.


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
