Subject jnlp-file doesn't work
Date Mon, 17 Aug 2009 04:37:52 GMT
Hi Tomcat Users,

I'm struggling with a Java Web Start application. My application and the 
jnlp file are both correct. Everything works fine if I use a different 
server. But if I use Tomcat, I'll get the following error:

JNLParseException[ Could not parse launch file. Error at line 0.]

and encoding.error.not.xml

It seems to be the case that the file gets delivered, but not recognized 
as an valid xml-file for JWS. I use Tomcat 6 and the mime-type has 
already been set properly. I created therefore a servlet which generates 
exactly the same output and made it available as a *.jnlp file via the 

	PrintWriter output = null;

And now everything works fine! But it shouldn't be neccessary to write a 
servlet for such a simple task. The fault must be somewhere in my config 
files for the Tomcat. Does anybody know where the problem may be?
