Using Tomcat5 on Windows when running HTTPS, when I click the link to Launch my .jnlp file it just tries to download it to my file system. When I disable SSL and run nomally with HTTP, it works fine. Why won't JWS pick it up through HTTPS???

Thanks

Hi,

This is an IE Explorer bug.

What is happening is that in Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Security you have the "Do not save encrypted pages on the disk" checked or in the http response sent back to the broser there is some "Pragma" - "No-cache" or "Cache-control" "No-cache" or "No-store" for http1.1.
If one of the above happens IE will not be able to save the jnlp file in its cache and subsequntly not able to run it. Try Netscape, it works.

BR,
Cristian
