Hey all,
Im looking at some how either by group policy, Batch file or script to control the Java cache. Basically i want the contents of it emptied. Reason for this is it takes up abit of space but more importantly our AV reports alot of it as suspious so will help clear the AV logs down.
We have a mix enviroment of XP,Vista and W7 so there are obviously issues witht he folder location for example xp is Docs and sets\user\App Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\Cache and 7 is users\user\app data\ etc. How does everyone else deal with this?

yes, it will remove the cache whatever the version and OS you are using.

if you want to remove a specific jnlp from your cache, you can use:

javaws -uninstall <jnlp file name>



Hope this helps..
