All, I have a question for you. I have to write a servlet using web server to go to backend database(sybase) and retrieve the details of a table enter by user. My requirements are 1. java web start 2. jdbc 3. connection to database 4. to run servlet Today morning I have downloaded java webstart from java site and placed on shared drive because of disk space on my local drive(using nt). When I was trying to execute some sample demos from java site, its poping a dialogue box saying that java webstart version 1.0.1 and not doing anything? My question is 1. Is it happening becuase I stored java web start on shared drive and not on my local drive? Is there any particular drive and directory I have to store java web start? 2. How do I run small html file using java web start and the command? 3. Any sites with demos etc. 4. To connect to sybase any particular details? I really appreciate your help.
