Java[TM] Web Start Version 1.0.1_02 is now available for download.
JavaTM Web Start is now part of the Macintosh OS X 10.1 release.
JavaTM Web Start -- a new application-deployment technology -- gives
you the power to launch full-featured applications with a single click
from your Web browser. You can now download and launch applications,
such as a complete spreadsheet program or an Internet chat client,
without going through complicated installation procedures.
Java Web Start includes the security features of the JavaTM 2 platform,
so the integrity of your data and files is never compromised. In
addition, Java Web Start technology enables you to use the latest Java
2 technology -- with any browser.
With Java Web Start, you launch applications simply by clicking on a
Web page link. If the application is not present on your computer, Java
Web Start automatically downloads all necessary files. It then caches
the files on your computer so the application is always ready to be
relaunched anytime you want -- either from an icon on your desktop or
from the browser link. And no matter which method you use to launch the
application, the most current version of the application is always
presented to you. Java Web Start is localized into French, German,
Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, and
Java Web Start is easy to use: you can efficiently access, download,
and launch applications as easily as accessing a Web page. To get
started, just click on the graphic below to download and install Java
Web Start 1.0.1_02.
Because Java Web Start runs independently of any browser, you can shut
down your browser or surf to another Web page and continue using your
application. Applications deployed with Java Web Start do not require a
browser interface to operate. To save time later, you can relaunch your
desired application anytime from the desktop icon, without powering up
your browser again.
End-users will discover the ease of Java Web Start for everyday tasks,
while developers will appreciate its flexibility, power, and inherent
security features when deploying new applications on the Web.
Flexibility, functionality, security, and standards -- Java Web Start
gives you more to work with.
