My application needs JDK 1.4.2 to execute.When users with other versions of JDK try to access my application using web start the application doesnot launch.I therefore had to uninstall JDK versions other than 1.4.2 for launching the application.
How can i configure my JNLP file to ensure that only Jre for Java 1.4.2 is downloaded(if not present with the client) and used irrespective of the JRE installed on the client?I also need to ensure that all this happens without the end user intervention.
Thanks in advance
