Deployment with JavaWebStart

Using the webstart application the clients are automatically set up for use any any changes are automatically downloaded and ready for use.

I also have scripts and or .bat set up to do the signing and copying to the intranet.

I have included my sample .jnlp file that I use for deploying in JavaWebStart.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- JNLP File for tn5250j Application -->
       spec="0.2 1.0"

All these files are signed before coping to server.
