How to Configure the Java Deployment Cache for Deployments on a Large Number of Windows Machines (Doc ID 1002183.1)

Last updated on JUNE 08, 2020

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 1.5.0 to 8
All Platforms
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)


When deploying a Java applet or Java Web Start application on a large number of machines, it is desirable to have centralized configuration files in order to ease the administrative task. This feature is described in the "Deployment Configuration File and Properties" section of the Deployment Guide.

In the documentation, no example is provided for a centralized configuration. This document is intended to provide a simple example of two things:

1. Configuration of the Java Deployment Cache in a centralized place in order to avoid Java Deployment Caches for each individual user

2. Restriction of the size of this centralized Java Deployment Cache to 20 MB.
