OpenWebStart as Java 8

Post by walcker »

Thank's for you attention,

Some times ago I bought a mind maps software, projeceted to work with java 8.
As OpenWebStart helped me a lot to solve different problems with Java machine
I hoped to re-use it,
but unfortunately I couldn't open my software :? .

Is there any way to set OpenWebStart as a Java 8?

OWS is not a replacement for Java 8.

OWS uses a JVM (Java8 or higher) to start your application which is specified in a Jnlp file (https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial ... /jnlp.html)

OWS implements https://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=56

Your application must be packaged in a jar file which is then specified in the Jnlp file. OWS downloads the Jnlp file and the specified jar files and launches the application contained in a jar file with a JVM that matches the one specified in the Jnlp file.
