Does anybody know what algorithm is used to check if there are new versions of the libraries?
Does Java WebStart use particular HTTP headers?
I'm asking because I'm using a PHP script as a proxy for the libraries, but JWS doesn't pick up updates.

Hi,

URLConnection.getLastModified() in JnlpResource.class is used for that.

BR,
Cristian
