Subject [www]: Mime types & Java Webstart
Date Wed, 12 May 2004 23:18:16 GMT
Hello Infrastructure,

Currently the Log4j team is experimenting with a Java swing GUI that we
would like to be launched by Java Web Start.  I was under the impression
that the www.apache.org server already had the necessary MIME type
configured to support this, but unfortunately it turns out not to be the

For Java Webstart to work correctly, the mime.types file needs to have the
following entry (this is taken from a Apache 1.3 server, 2.0 semantics are
probably different):

type=application/x-java-jnlp-file desc="Java Web Start" exts="jnlp"

At the moment *.jnlp is being delivered as text/plain which causes Java
Webstart on a client machine to ignore it.

Would you be so kind as to add this new mime type in the appropriate format
to the /usr/local/apache2-install/www.apache.org/conf/mime.types file and
have Apache reload the configuration?

We are hoping that the following URL will then start to be delivered in the
correct MIME type:
