NAME
       javaws - a Java Web Start client

SYNOPSYS
       javaws [-run-options] jnlp-file
       javaws [-control-option]

DESCRIPTION
       javaws  is an implementation of a JNLP  client. It uses a JNLP (Java Network Launch Proto-
       col) file to securely run a remote Java application or a Java applet.  This implementation
       of javaws is from the IcedTea project and is based on the NetX project.

       A JNLP file is an xml file that describes how to securely run a remote Java application or
       a Java applet.

OPTIONS
       When specifying options, the name of the jnlp file must be the last argument to	javaws	-
       all the options must preceede it.

       The jnlp-file can either be a url or a local path.

       Control Options

       By  default  javaws  will  launch the jnlp file specified on the command line. The control
       options can be used to change this behaviour.

       -about	   Shows a sample application that can be used to test the basic functionality of
		   this implementation.

       -viewer	   Shows  the  trusted	certificate  viewer. This allows a user to list, examine,
		   remove or export trusted certificates. Note that this only reflects	the  cer-
		   tificates trusted by javaws and not any other certificates or programs.

       Run Options

       In the default mode, the following run-options can be used:

       -basedir dir
		   Directory where the cache and certificates to be used are stored.

       -arg arg    Adds an application argument before launching.

       -param name=value
		   Adds an applet parameter before launching.

       -property name=value
		   Sets a system property before launching.

       -update seconds
		   Update check if seconds since last checked.

       -license    Display the GPL license and exit.

       -verbose    Enable verbose output. Very useful in debugging.

       -nosecurity Disables the secure runtime environment.

       -noupdate   Disables checking for updates.

       -headless   Disables download window, other UIs.

       -strict	   Enables  strict checking of JNLP file format. Any deviations from the JNLP DTD
		   will cause javaws to abort.

       -umask=value
		   Sets the umask for files created by an application.

       -Xnofork    Do not create another JVM, even if the JNLP file asks for running in  a  sepa-
		   rate JVM. This is useful for debugging.

       -Jjava-option
		   This  passes  along java-option to the java binary that is running javaws. For
		   example, to make javaws run with a max heap size of 80m, use -J-Xmx80m.

       -help	   Print a help message and exit.

BUGS
       There arent any known bugs. If you come across one, please file it at
	   http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/
       Please run javaws in verbose mode and include that output along with the  jnlp  file  when
       filing out the bug report.
