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.
