I'm running a site that redirects IE users who don't have Java installed to the Sun automatic Java installer page:
After Java is installed, I want users to be redirected to the page on my site where they came from - so that they can continue with my application.
I'm using the deploy.js scripts from the Java Deployment Toolkit:
The installLatestJRE function adds a parameter, "returnPage", to the automatic Java install URL that implies that this redirect capability can work. The URL has this format:
The problem is that after multiple tests, I can't get the returnPage request to be honored. I always get redirected to the Sun test java page instead.
So... does anybody know how to get Sun's Automatic Java install page to redirect back to an originating page?
