I'm having trouble setting up my web server to use jnlp.
I use apache and I added the following line to the mime.types file:
application/x-java-jnlp-file
Then I restarted the server but whenever I try to execute a jnlp file, my browser just displays the contents of the file and it doesn't do anything.

here are the contents of the file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<jnlp spec="1.0+"
codebase="http://localhost/myapp/"
href="runmyapp.jnlp">
<information>
<title>Ronnie's Test Application</title>
<vendor>Mauro Inc.</vendor>
<homepage href="home.html"/>
<description>Load, edit and save any text file quickly and effectively!</description>
<description kind="short">My simple booking System</description>
<description kind="tooltip">A text Editor</description>
<icon href="img/logo.gif"/>
<offline-allowed/>
</information>
<resources>
<j2se version="1.3+"/>
<jar href="runme.jar"/>
</resources>
<application-desc main-class="suncertify.MainClass"/>
</jnlp>

Can anyone help?

hi Ronnie,
we have to set the browser mime type as well so that the brower can launch the jnlp file with jaws..
if u r on Windows/IE then it will accept ur system mime type settings. so basically u go to the Folder Options->View types and add just one more for the .jnlp extension..
if u use Netscape then u've to go "Preferences->Helper applications (or applications in NN4)"...
and set the jnlp mime type..
hth,
maulin

Actually I already had jnlp listed as a file type but it just started working and I didn't do anything to fix it. Oh well...Thanks dude. I appreciate your help.

The server must associate application/x-java-jnlp-file MIME type for JNLP files, so the line you need to add to the mime.types file is this:
application/x-java-jnlp-file JNLP
Notice the second part: "JNLP"
This way the server will return "application/x-java-jnlp-file" for every jnlp file.
HTH
