Setup and Functioning of Karakun OpenWebStart

Post by Sergio »

-How does OpenWebStart generally work, in relation to an Apache Webserver, say on Linux, and a Mozilla FireFox browser,
say on Windows 10 64 bit? How does the webserver allow a Java program based on Java code to be transmitted and run
by means of the internet, or a web page tag link? What does a JNLP file generally do, and how does it enter in to things?

-How do you install and set up Karakun OpenWebStart, and on which client/server end(s)?

-What versions of Java OpenJDK are OpenWebStart compatible with? What is its lowest compatible Java version? Above that
version, is OpenWebStart compatible with all versions later than that, moving forward?

-Is it possible for OpenWebStart to communicate back to Apache, or maybe some complied Static Java code residing on the Apache
web server's PC?

OWS works like for Oracle Java Web Start which was discontinued by Oracle from Java 9 onwards.

Oracle JWS is described here : https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial ... /jnlp.html

OWS implements most features of JSR 56 : https://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=56
