Java Configuration

Java Console for Applets and Web Start Applications

The following section explains how to configure your Java installation to show the Java Console for Applets and Web Start applications.

The directions differ depending on which version of Java you are using.

Java 6

The directions below describe how to show the Java Console for Applets and Web Start applications.

  1. Run javaws with the "-viewer" switch and no other arguments:
    • $ $JAVAHOME/bin/javaws -viewer
    • This should launch both the Java Control Panel and the Java Cache Viewer (this is the console you can use to delete temp files).


    • It is likely that the Java Cache Viewer will open on top of the Java Control Panel.
  2. You don't need the Java Cache Viewer for now, so close it by clicking on the "Close" button.
  3. In the Java Control Panel, select the "Advanced" tab.


  4. Under the "Debugging" heading, turn on all of the options.
