This section describes the steps involved in deploying a Client Services Web Start application on the Web server.
Perform the following steps to deploy a Client Services Web Start application on a web server:
- Ensure that the Web server maps .jnlp files to mime type application/x-java-jnlp-file
- Sign the common launch jar com.ibm.rcp.jnlp.launch_1.0.0.jar
- Add the common launch jar as a resource to the Web server. This can either be in a common location referenced by all applications, or it can be copied into each application's codebase directory. This decision affects the contents of the application's JNLP file. In particular, the resource must have its href attribute properly set to the Common Launch component’s location.
- Install the application jar file and JNLP files produced by the Web Start export to the Web server under the codebase specified in their JNLP files (or update the JNLP file’s codebase attribute to correspond to where you are placing them).
