I have one problem there...I am trying to use JWS and JNLP on non standard way..
Idea is that JNLP file can hold some data for mine Java application. This textual data can be stored in property nodes of jnlp file and then provided to application through command line <argument>...

It works fine, application is started as JWS application and load data from jnlp properties, but there is one problem:
-I want to have several different jnlp files(only properties data is changed) on my client machine, and, when first jnlp is started, user will see application with data stored in properties of first jnlp file. When second jnlp is started, application shows data from second jnlp file...and so on...

But problem is that if any version of jnlp is started, I wil see only data from jnlp which is stored on our web-server, (defined by codebase argument).
JWS automatically download exactly that version of jnlp and then run it.

So, question is, can I force JWS to load property values not from server version of JNLP, but from mine locale version?

Best regards,

Okay, this question has been around for 24 hours and nobody has taken a shot at it.

So it's time for me to say, this sounds like a really bad idea to me. Why don't you go back to the question which you thought this was the answer to, and ask that question again? Ask it here if you like, because it has to have a better answer than that.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
