i have an application, and i want to be able to upload a new version to a server, and the user to update his version.

so i start to use web start, i allow ofline in jnlp configuration.

but every time the user starts the app (if he has an internet connection) it checks for an update, and its really slow, in feact sometimes the jframe is shown empty anda bit later the panels and other componets inside it are shown.

so:

i want to copy the jar in the user machine as the old times and make the application execute always as offline (quickly), and to only check for updates. when the user press a button.

is there a way to do that? do i have to run a script that excecutes the jnlp when the user press the update button? but i think the jnlp wont update the jar, it will update the webstart cache. how can i do that?

and there is a way to hide the java-start splash screen?

perhaps you could recommend me another way for updating an app? have you seen the way JDowloader updates? do you know how to implement something like that??

thanks for reading!!

ill be waiting for your replys

Hi,
There are some options that you can define for update type.
These options allow you to select which resource file (Class or Clsses) to update.
I tried to find its setting and post it, but I'm couldn't find time.
Good Luck.
