Java WebStart and Classpath

Hi,

I have a Java WebStart application. Since it relies on a library that is for testing only and is only free for 3 months, I cannot put it on my webserver, but will have to tell people to download it to their own computer first if they want to make tests with my software.

Now I tried this. Got my own jar signed and put it on my website, made the jnlp file and all that stuff. (regular programs work). But the third-party jar files are not found although they are listed in my local classpath.

Is there a separate Classpath to be set for WebStart?

thanks for your help.

Have you tried putting the local jars in the ext directory.

not until now. lol

And I also made this very brilliant mistake of putting it in my ibm java ext directory and using blackdown java. Of course it didnt work.
