Hi.

I want to (temporarily) change the webstart cache location when my webstart program starts on a client computer. How do I do this without manually changing deployment.config on the client?

I don't think, you can change by application( JNLP, programmatically )
why do you want to change it btw?

Have big problems of webstart not detecting that a new version has been deployed and continues with the old one in perpetum.

One of the problems seems to be that if there are white spaces in the cache path, it just doesn't work

But it seems to just recently been fixed, but not all clients run the latest version...

Do you have any suggestions on how to force an update using the jnlp file?

JNLP compares the timestamp of your jar files on the server.
If you use touch command on one of the jars on your server -I guess,  it should force all clients to reload the program
