Yeah well, I'm gonna go build my own lunar lander.

I like to provide a property file with my webstart application for changing some of features/properties before startup.

Putting the file into a jar seems to be no solution, as it is only readable; providing it as a resource in the jnlp-file didn't work, because only jar's are allowed (that, unfortunately, makes totally sense :-/).

Does anyone knows if it is possible to make the file easily (not hidden somewhere in the javaws directory) accessible by the user on the client-side? Or are there any alternatives?

thx, gismo Smiley

1. Do the changes in-game (i.e. using a "prefereces" dialog with all the various options) because text-file-based-config is soooo 20th century (i.e. it SUCKS)

2. Use muffins to store the preferences in a way that is 100% compatible with webstart (search these forums for a big thread on muffins with source code)

malloc will be first against the wall when the revolution comes...
