JWS - frmservlet.jnlp not deleted on exit for Edge Chromium

user9340825 Member Posts: 4 Blue Ribbon


We are migrating to JWS to enable forms on Edge-Chromium. Found out the .jnlp is not deleted once we logout or exit browser. So we end up with lot of jnlp file in download folder and need to clean it up manually.

From MOS 2188898.1, it says file will be removed automatically

"A new frmservlet.jnlp file is downloaded each time the Forms application or a regular Java applet is launched. The file is saved in the default download location as defined in Microsoft Edge. Upon launching frmservlet.jnlp, the Java Web Start launcher will automatically remove this file."

**Chromium v91

Anyone has any idea?

    The note you mentioned is for E-Business Suite, but I will assume you are not using EBS since their configuration happens automatically when you properly install the EBS patches.

    For non-EBS environments, add the following to the <resource> section of the base.jnlp file:

    <property name="jnlp.delete.jnlp.file" value="true"/>

    So, given the default base.jnlp file the change would look like this:

           <!-- Application Resources -->
            <property name="jnlp.delete.jnlp.file" value="true"/>
            <j2se version="%java_version%" href=""/>
           <jfx:javafx-runtime version="2.2+"/>
           <jar href="%contextRoot%/java/frmall.jar" download="eager" main="true" />
           <extension name="Extensions" href="%contextRoot%/java/extensions.jnlp"/>

    If you are using WebUtil you would need to update the WebUtil jnlp template in the same manner.

    We are using E-Business Suite.

    We do not encountered the issue on Edge and Chrome. The file get deleted automatically. Only Edge Chromium
