    RDA does not start after java update

    When I want to start remote device access, I get an error message that "Java Webstart Launcher" does not work any more.
    I has worked before, so I think is is because I updated java recently to the latest patch. 1,7.0_07

    It is Windows 7 64bit with a 32bit java.The crash occurs in javaws.exe

    Do other have the same problem? How can I debug Java webstart issues?

    Regards

    Re: RDA does not start after java update

    I can not confirm it for Win7 but I experienced the very same when testing XP today (#15 of http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ast-4-days-now)
    It is Oracle who can fix Java, however it is true that it may be good having Nokia/Digia reporting the issue too.

    Also on Ubuntu 10.04, after Java update (not Sun's but IcedTea). On Ubuntu 12.04 it worked OK (they haven't updated Java yet? ))

    Re: RDA does not start after java update

    My current analysis:

    With java7u7 does not work any more, with java 6 is still works.

    I have done a java update from system tool, it looks like it does not update the jdk.
    But even after remove all java7 and reinstall them, adjus PATH and JDK_HOME, it does not work.
    I also removed the temporary java files with the java control panel in the windows settings.
    I also tried to call javaws.exe it from the command line. Without options, it shows an info box, so at least this works.

    But with "javaws.exe -verbose downloaddir\launchdevui.jnlp" it crashes before it can produce any output.


    When I use a still installed java6u33 from the command line, it works.
    For example:
    Code:
    \java\java6\jre\javaws.exe -verbose downloaddir\launchdevui.jnlp
    One possible problem with RDA and Java7 is the following:
    The codebase attribut the jnlp-file should now use "https" instead of "http",
    according to this stack-overflow entry:

    Re: RDA does not start after java update

    During the weekend I have read about the circumstances of this sudden release of Java 7u7 and now I do not feel motivated to install Java 7 again prior to the next few releases. However as I remember I have not got a message about a Java exception, but I had JavaWS.exe explicitly crashing, with lots of hexadecimal numbers and an offer to send an error report.
    Anyway, if someone still has it, downloading the JNLP file and changing http to https can be tested.
    (Apparently you have not been to the other thread, but yes, it is validated already that Java 6 is just fine.)

    Re: RDA does not start after java update

    I just send an email to the feedback address at the bottom of the RDA page, ndh.fi@nokia.com.
    I hope this is the right channel, and they give us more information.
