Applet smarter than JNLP?
I met some problem with JNLP:
Our application is deployed from proprietary HTTP servers of our clients.
When we installed our application as Applet, all the files were just copied to HTTP server folder and this worked (better or worse)
Now, to install our application with JNLP we need to put the HOSTNAME of HTTP server both in JNLP page and JRE-version-checking html page (codebase, jar and jnlp paths). Moreover, if the hostname of the server is changed - the change should be done in these files once again.
This is confusing. Why couldn't I just set - the place where you downloaded the JNLP from is the codebase (just like in Applet).
I know, there is possibility of JSP, but this makes the HTTP server installation more difficult...
Are there other ways to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance
