The OpenJDK 8 for Windows distribution includes an implementation of the Java Web Start deployment protocol based on the IcedTea-Web open source project.


This implementation of the Java Web Start protocol may not be fully compatible with the proprietary Java Web Start implementation included in the Oracle Java 8 distribution.

To report an issue with your Web Start application, please include the appropriate details from the %LOCALAPPDATA%\RedHat\java-1.8.0-openjdk-[version]\webstart\javaws_last_log.txt log file.
