I am working with Netbeans IDE 5.5.1 and Web Start on Windows XP to deploy a Java Application to an Apache Web Server on Linux. First of all I am a coder but Im not very familiar with Netbeans IDE or Web Start. I see that by right clicking on the name in the projects tab I can choose Java Web Start and Deploy with Java Web Start. This creates the necessary files for deployment (I guess, let me know if Im wrong) and says Deploying app to server then creates a JSP page on my localhost with a button.
What I am trying to do is deploy the app to Apache on a Linux server I have set up on the network. I think I understand the JNLP file enough:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE jnlp PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD JNLP 1.5//EN" "http://www.netbeans.org/jnlp/DTD/jnlp.dtd
<jnlp codebase="$$codebase" href="Contacts.jnlp">
<jar href="dist/Contacts.jar" main="true"/>`
I guess this is the link to download the files <jnlp codebase="$$codebase" href="Contacts.jnlp">
But I don't know where to set the server to deploy to. I guess it would ask for the host, login and password.
I'm sure exactly sure what question I should ask so I hope someone understands what I mean.
