Hi,

I am not sure that it can be done from the jnlp file, but you can change the webstart cache folder through the java webstart manager on the client machine.

By default, the cache directory is hidden deep within the sun directory in the users profile (on windows anyway). You can change this location to anywhere you like with the preferences available from the webstart manager.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Jared.
