Java Web Start Based Application Does Not Launch Via Oracle Secure Global Desktop 5.2 (Doc ID 2075978.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 13, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 5.2 to 5.2 [Release 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Trying to launch an Secure Global Desktop (SGD) X application that is based on Java Web Start (javaws) results in a Java splash screen that disappears after a second but nothing else.  The splash screen is expected but the actual application should appear after that.

This should be recognized as distinct from using Java Web Start to authenticate to the SGD server (https://support.oracle.com/knowledge/Sun%20Microsystems/2182955_1.html).  This document discusses applications that are themselves JWS applications and are provisioned and launched through SGD.
