Enabling Java Web Start on Linux Firefox

To Enable Java Web Start on Linux Firefox:
1. Remove the IcedTea java plugin (libjavaplugin.so or javaplugin.so) link in /usr/lib64/browser-plugins. (or lib for 32 bit systems)
2. Create a link to the sun java plugin in the /usr/lib64/browser-plugins directory:
ln -s /usr/local/java/jdk/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so libnpjp2.so

(Use your java path)
That's it!
To make sure your plugin in installed type:
about:plugins

in the firefox address window.
To test the plug-in using a jnlp webstart applet, Click the 'Biorhythm applet' icon on this page:

Voila!
If webstart stops working, it is probably due to an update adding back the icedtea link. Just delete the link and webstart will work again.

To learn shorter programs when compared to Java then it is the right time to choose python training. There is increasing market demand for professionals who have completed python training.
