Re: JNLP app runs good but without any data previously stored

can you give me a hint where the data is stored?

Is it relative to the JNLP file?
is it in a fixed directory?
is it relative to the user home directory?

The current launcher is setting some of these base directories to somewhat unusual values.
Maybe this is related to the behavior you are seeing

Re: launching from a jnlp file, on x32 linux

I can confirm the same behavior on a x64 linux.

This is sub optimal. We will have a look at this

Re: launching from web url, onn x32 linux

Ok this is a little bit confusing. The error claims that --add-export=... is not a valid option to a 11.0.7 JVM. Can you please try and run the following command in a terminal: /home/ddyer/.cache/icedtea-web/jvm-cache/azul_11.0.7/bin/java -Xbootclasspath/a:/opt/OpenWebStart/openwebstart.jar --add-ex...

Re: Thawte code signing issuer CA missing

Hi Thank you for reporting this. OpenWebStart does not maintain a curated collection of certificates. Rather it relies on the JVM which brings a default set of certificates. With our halve year releases (spring and fall) we also update the bundled JVM and thus the included certificates. But this is ...

Re: launching from a jnlp file, on x32 linux

can you please try and pass the full path to the jnlp on the command line.

Something similar to

javaws /user/home/dyer/Downloads/boardspace7.jnlp

Re: JNLP app runs good but without any data previously stored

Sorry but without knowing the application we cannot help here. If the application saves the data relative to the JDK then it will of course not find any data when you chose a different JDK. Or it could be that the application uses a feature which is no longer available in JDK 15 and therefore fails ...

Re: Unattended installation var from response.varfile not saved

With version 1.3.0 we added the possibility to define local JVMs at installation time.

Re: Problem with paramters in varfile when unattented installation

@ptai
The .varfile is only used in the case of unattended installation.
For any other use case the %USER_HOME%/.config/icedtea-web/deployment.properties is the correct file to modify

Re: Error when launching application on terminal server

The error reports a missing library from HP.
This is a library used by the application itself not OWS.

Is the library included in the JNLP or is it expected to be pre-installed on the machine?

Re: JViewer applet not working

Hi and thank you for using OWS.

I am sorry but the exception is coming from the JViewer Code.
A quick search with google did not find anything useful you could try.
I guess your best option is to contact the developers of JViewer and ask for help

Re: Need to download JRE from Unix Server JDK

We never tried it our selves.
But please go ahead and give it a shot. The string you put into the Default update server is used to create a URL object.
So file:/// should work.

Re: Why is openwebstart requesting to record my computer screen?

OK, very interesting.
The code for OpenWebStart is all on github, also the one of icedtea-web.
Feel free to have a look. I don't think I opened all java files in the last 2 years.
But in none of the files I looked into did I find any code which would capture the screen

Re: Why is openwebstart requesting to record my computer screen?

Hi, thank you for reporting this. We are a little puzzled by this. OWS does not do any screen recording. It also does not take any screen shots. Could it be that the application which you have launched using OWS is trying to capture the screen? Since OWS runs the application in its own process the O...

Re: How to disable -verbose option when launching app via openwebstart

Yes we plan to remove this with the upcoming release 1.3.0
We initially enforced verbose mode to reduce friction when people create bug reports.
Now that OWS has reached a very stable state we do no longer have the need to enforce the verbose mode

Re: Import server certificate to System Trust Root CA Certificates

Also be advised that importing a certificate into the system store has only limited effect. This is due to the fact that OWS will launch a different JVM for your application. So the certificates of the system JVM will not apply. Therefore it is recommended to import custom certificates into the user...

Re: Import server certificate to System Trust Root CA Certificates

The view in your screenshot is a read only view.
To manage the certificates you can go to the open webstart settings and choose the tab "certificates"

The view is almost identical to the one in your screenshot and the import button is enabled.
