jnlp File with a lot of Jar's

Post by AndreasB »


I have a Project with ~100 Dependency Jar's.
What would be the best way of structuring the jnlp File? Should I create one jnlp File with all the jars or should I create an extension jnlp with all jars?

Thanks in advance.

Having too many extensions can cause problems, especially if some of these extensions only contain other extensions and no resources (e.g. jar files).
So from a risk reducing point of view go with a single JNLP.
If this on the other hand ends up in an unmanageable JNLP then create a few extensions.
Also do not try to create lazy download parts across multiple JNLP files.
