Oracle broke BSW!

Post by Cam » 23 Sep 2011, 13:32

Oracle removed the signatures from jai and now BSW won't launch. Is there a workaround for this?

Check out the slashdot article: http://developers.slashdot.org/story/11 ... g-webstart

Two other questions:
1) where is a list of all of the commands that are available in BSW?
2) google chrome can't launch BSW from the web. It tries to save the button as a .php file instead of executing it. Any ideas why?

Thanks Much,
Cameron

Yep, Oracle broke it, and its going to take an update to get things working again. I'll do it either tonight or tomorrow and post a note where when its fixed. The manual install will still work.

The list of all commands is under Help, Command Documentation (Or something like that.. I can't bring up BSW here to check right now).

I'll look into the Chrome issue. I kind of know why it is happening.. The startup file is actually delivered by a .php file. Chrome must be ignoring the mime type and using the extension of the file. I'll see if there's anything that can be done.

The webstart version of BSW is back up and running.

I also did a tweak to make Chrome happy.
