    FTP driven Java Web Start

      Good Morning,

      Does anyone know if it possible to store the resource jar files for a web start app on an FTP server?

      So in the jnlp file the codebase would refer to a ftp(s) site and not http(s)

      <jnlp spec="6.0+" codebase="ftp://somewhere">

      then I guess the resources could remain as they were, i.e.

      <jar href="xstream-1.3.1.jar"/>
      <jar href="other.jar"/>

      I have had a look in these forums and on the web and it barely gets a mention.

      I can test myself but interested to hear if anyone had tried deploying web start using ftp? And if so what issues were encountered.
