Is it possible to use eager loading for Web Start? In other words have Web Start say once a day check for updates for my app so the user does not have to wait next time they access the app form web start?
If that can be done how do I notify the user about the update?

Thanks,
-Tony

Hi linuxhippy,

After reading the webstart enhancements for version 1.6 I would agree. Seems as if the checking of updates only occurs when the web start enabled app is started.

Be great if Web Start could make use of the java update process that tells the user when a jre update is available for download.

Regards,
