I use a Java Web Start Application (Blogpluck) which frequently updates itself (thanks to Lance for whipping out features). The problem is the application automatically updates itself, irrespective of whether I would like to update or not. The ideal solution would be let Web start to download the readme/new featues file first and display it and let the user decide if he wants to upgrade or not. If the upgrade is mandatory then atleast display the readme/new feautures file after the application is downloaded/started. I dont knpw enough about writing a Web start enabled application. Will look up docs and see if this is possible. Anyone out there who knows if Web start provides this feature?
Makes sense eh?
