    Default Java Web Start is trying to open a file that doesn't exist... and succeeding?

    Edit: Cracked the code! See post four for details.

    Okay, so in my continued quest to put a text adventure on the internet, I think I've bumped into my most bizarre problem yet.

    I've currently setup two html pages to open up and display my self-signed applet. One of these pages simply integrates the applet into the page, while the other page launches it with Java Web Start. After much finagling, I managed to get them both to run, but the Java Web Start Page seems to be running an older version of my applet's .jar file than the one I uploaded to the server most recently, a .jar file I thought I had deleted and cannot find in my website's file manager.

    The other page seems to call the most recent applet just fine.

    The two test pages can be found here:
    http://firstprinceproductions.helioh...undedjnlp.html
    http://firstprinceproductions.helioh...g/Wounded.html

    I really have no idea what's causing this. They should both be calling the same Wounded.jar.
    I would really appreciate some advice on how to resolve this truly strange issue.

    Try going into the Java control panel and deleting any cached versions of the jar.

    I tried that, I did see some older cached versions of the .jar on my computer, but deleting them did not change anything. Is there some sort of java control panel for the server I'm using I should be looking at?

    I cracked the code! I had to refer to the main class in my jnlp file with its package!
