Hi. I would like to ask you guys whether it is possible to force the installation of JRE when trying to open JNLP file. It is quite often case when users try to run JWS application without JRE installed. The best option would be to force the installation or at least display some message with instructions. Perhaps there are different ways to handle this problem.
you'd have to handle that at operating system level. Without JWS installed AND RUNNING on the machine it's just another file the operating system doesn't know what to do with.
So no, nothing Oracle can do about that.
