We are using JNLPAppletLauncher to download native library contained in a jar file.
On the Macintosh platform, JNLPAppletlauncher puts the files in a folder called jnlp-applet in the /tmp directory.
Everything works fine when logged into the Mac as User1. JNLPAppletlauncher
creates a folder called jnlp-applet in /tmp with the following permissions :
drwxr-xr-x User1 wheel 204 Oct 14 10:00 jnlp-applet
Now the problem arises when User2 logs into the mac and run the applet.
They get an exception that it can't create the folder jnlp-applet. This is obviously
because of the owner and permissions of the existing folder.
Any ideas ? Maybe just a flaw in JNLPAppletLauncher on the mac platform.
