Hi,

Im currentl trying to get a JOGL application to run in a web browser. We make use of several jar libraries. From the research i have done i have found out that the way to go forward with this is to use java web start, which i have never used before. I have read that you need a web server to handle jnlp files so I downloaded apache tomcat and tried to configure the MIME files.

My first question is whether a web server is required. If so, how would i go about configuring one. If none of this is needed, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Myran

Yes, you do need a web server to serve the JNLP files. You didn't say why you decided to use Tomcat; I hear that it can be used as a web server but in this case I don't see why you wouldn't just install something which is designed to be a web server in the first place.

Welcome to JavaRanch
Please UseAMeaningfulSubjectLine which has a more meaning than "Help with Java Web Start".
This forum is already particular for JNLP and WebStart
