I have Java 6-based Java Web Start application that I need to open on a Windows machine. The machine has JRE 7 installed, with JRE 6 copied manually to the
javaws -verbose app.jnlp
I have Java 6-based Java Web Start application ..How can I force JRE 6 just for this application?
Use an appropriate
version attribute in the
<resources> <!-- Any 1.6 JRE --> <j2se version='1.6*'> ... </resources>
This solution no longer seems to work for installing earlier versions of the JVM!
The best reason I can think of for why it would fail to work is that Oracle is tiring of releasing security updates for earlier Java versions - so is forcing every user to use the latest JVM.
