(programmer/beta-tester) of the tn5250j program on
We have the
possibility to run jython script from within our emulator,
and here we use Java
Webstart to start the application.
webstart (or IE) starts from the desktop by default (at least
we should click the link on our webbrowser to actually
start tn5250j trough
webstart, we always get a "cache"-dir created on the
desktop. Seems that
jython is doing this.
Cause our program is
developed that way the config-files are places in the
users home-dir (in
java System.getProperty("user-home")) we want that
cache-dir created as
a subdir into that user home-dir. So the question is,
is this possible ???
can we override the creation of the cache dir into the
instead of the user-dir (current working dir) like it is now
No need to say this
is very annoying, because users simply do not want
those dirs created
on the desktop. The strange thing is however, that
when you click the
link for the second time, java webstart asks you if
you want icons
created in the menu and on the deskop. After those
icons are created
you can delete the cache-dir on the desktop and
it won't be created
anymore as long as you use the icons created by
java webstart, but
when you start IE again and use the link, then the
cache-dir is created
on the desktop again... very frustrating.
I hope there is a
solution for this, cause this not really makes users
happy, that is.
