Hi all,
I have a very weird situation. We have a thin client product that does graphs for a client. We recently upgraded the graph to be 3D. But now the problem is that only the graph on the server is 3D. The client machine doesn't seem to upgrade. The tech guys has looked at everything and are now blaming the development office. So what we doing is we created a PrintVersion() method that prints the version of the current files. Is there a way that i can force a file download if the versions dont correspond?
Thank you

What kind of application architecture do you have? This is the Servlets forum. Is this a Web Application? Why is there a Jar file on the client's machine?
There are many auto-updaters out there, including Sun's Java Web Start. If you have Weblogic, they come with an "installer" that also auto-updates. Can't help you out much more than that though.
