Hi we use java webstart to deploy a heavy client (swing gui war file) to the users. The issue i am having is everytime i make a change to the gui war file, the user will not get the changes until they goto java console and clear the cache, only then java webstart will download a new version of the war to the user's machine.
I know you can change the version to force a redownload, but the version for us is tied up to all sorts of automated deployment process, i dont want to increase the version everytime there is a minor change in the code in development for testing.
Is there any other way / flag i cant set in jnlp to make java webstart compare the war file size, and if different redownload. Thanks
