The Free JavaWS Implementation in IcedTea-Web

Ever wondered how IcedTea's javaws works?

The javaws application implements the Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) and makes it easier to deploy applications. javaws supports running untrusted applications (within a sandbox) and trusted applications. It provides implementations of the JNLP API. Most importantly, it works with a large number of applications that have been released. So how does IcedTea pull all this off?

This talk will describe the JNLP implementation in IcedTea-Web (formerly IcedTea) with a focus on recent developments.

After listening to this talk you should have a basic idea of

  • some of the things that JNLP applications can do
  • how the JNLP implementation in IcedTea-Web works
  • the various issues that affect the implementation
  • what the future plans for the implementation are
