Symptoms

On Oracle Agile e6.1.3 with the Webstart Java Client
Find that when one loads files from (for example) the CATIA interface with the quick load functionality (eci_loa_cax and eci_cko_fil_lst), the files are not checked out to the mentioned directory.
An error message like this is written in that case to the Java Client message window:
--
[7:47 AM] "Lade Process ist gestarted ..."
[7:47 AM] "Z0762142.CATProduct wird gelesen ..."
[7:47 AM] axalant_root ist nicht gesetzt!
[7:47 AM] axalant_root ist nicht gesetzt!
[7:47 AM] Datei "Z0066472.CATPart" konnte nicht kopiert werden!
[7:47 AM] Server-Meldung: FMS-Interface: FileServer Client not found or no access:


The fms_cli_vc10.exe is located locally in the interface folder and the local environment variable FMS_CLIENT points to it correctly.

Expected Behavior:
============
No error message should appear and the files should be checked out correctly.

What is Working:
=============
If the Fileserver Client was started before by any other action and the FMS_TIMEOUT is not yet over, the checkout works correctly as the Fileserver Client is still running.
Furthermore if the local Java Client is used instead of the Webstart Java Client the issue does not happen either.
Checkout with the standard check out functionality works fine as well.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
====================================
1. Start Webstart Java Client
2. Start eci_test_vc10.exe and connect to the started Webstart Java Client
3. Execute following function to gather the files to download in T_CAX_FIL_TMP:
eci_loa_cax
EDB-DOCUMENT
DRAWING
EDB-DOC-DRW-TLI
off
list
bat
off
off
T_DOC_DAT.DOCUMENT_ID
.
DOCUMENT-001
.
.
.
off
on
.
NORMAL
Y
DFM_LOCAL
N
.

3. Now try to download the files gathered in T_CAX_FIL_TMP by passing the correct Structure_ID returned from eci_loa_cax (example: Structure_ID=19)
eci_cko_fil_lst
19
C
C:\temp

Result are the following error messages in the Java Client message window (files are not checked out):
axalant_root isn't set!
axalant_root isn't set!
File "file name.ext" could not be copied!
