Does anyone know how to get webstart to put files outside the jar in a temp location that is related to where the jnlp starts from? I have a open source project whose code looks for files relative to the location of where the web start application starts. I discovered if I copy the files to the expected file on the desktop then everything is okay.
What I would like to do is put the files (dll's actually) in a location that can be found by the app but not visible on the dektop.
Any ideas? I figured maybe to use the user.home path and create a temp dir there then copy the dlls there for the open source code to find. Hate to put it in one users folder rather than a centralized temp folde but not sure how to go about that.
