Here's the situation, we have two applications; one runs with Java 1.5 and other with 1.6.  At the moment, I have 1.5 and 1.6 installed and both of these applications start.  When I install Java 1.7, then the application that needs 1.6 does not run.  I did not test to see if the 1.5 app starts when 1.7 was installed.
I'm not the developer, and I don't know the connection between Java 1.7 and JNLP relative to our applications, but this is the problem;  When I have Java 1.7 installed the application which uses Java 1.6 does not start.  The javaws stopped at the "app.jnlp"  My question is; what might be the problem.  I realize that I have not provided enough information, yet I am looking for a point to start, moving toward a solution.  I'm now trying to get a hold of the various jnlp files that are used.
My other question is; is there a way of inserting "breakpoints" into the jnlp files?
