i am deploying an applet with jws on tomcat 3.2. i did add the mime type for jnlp in conf/web.xml but when i call the jnlp file in the browser i get to see the contents of the jnlp file....why doesnt it get interpreted so as to run my applet?

i have been successful in deploying tha same applet on tomcat 5.

I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you directly but the most recent Tomcat 3.2 I can find is from November of 2001 - 4+ years ago. 3.2 was only the second release of Tomcat after Sun donated the reference implementation.

I'd strongly argue that if you're using 4+ year old software in a field that moves as quickly as Java/J2EE you've got way more problems than JNLP not working. Do you have to use something this old? I feel that the security, stability, and scalability of your system would be severely compromised with Tomcat 3.2.

I agree with you Scott. I work for power plant automation software where we have to support our old clients, thats why this problem. but i now ran the application successfully in tomcat 5, and i hope it will be no problem with the old clients....Thanks a lot!
