I have a work application that I need to run occasionally, and we're provided with a url that loads a page with nothing but the object tag pointing at some remote jar file. Obviously, I already have the JRE installed.
Is there a way to get this to run directly (in Windows)? If it were a jnlp file, I'd just do a c:\path\to\javaws.exe http://something.edu/blah.jnlp and it would work as expected.
I want to install a Windows browser, to run a JNLP app which only runs under Windows browsers per the supplier. App requires JavaWS. Trying to run the JNLP using JavaWS under Linux without a Windows browser results in "cannot read or parse JNLP file".
In class I was given the task of successfully opening/operating Blackboard Collaborate through a JNLP link that is saved on my Desktop. My professor gave us permission to make use of Google and other internet chat rooms such as stackoverflow.
I am trying to load an jnlp file. However I have the following erroro: Could not read or parse JNLP file. I've read that for this the problem might befrom Mozilla's preferences: Edit -> Preferences -> Applications -> "Java Web Start application".
