Javaws (Java Web Start) has been deprecated since Java 9 and has been removed from Java 11 onwards. As a result, if you need to run Java applications that previously used javaws, you may need to find an alternative solution.

One alternative is to package the Java application as a standalone executable using tools like Launch4j, JSmooth, or Packr. These tools can create native executable files for different operating systems, allowing you to distribute your Java application without requiring a separate installation of Java.

Another alternative is to use a containerization solution like Docker to package the Java application and its dependencies together in a container. This allows you to run the Java application on any system that has Docker installed, without worrying about the underlying operating system or Java version.

Finally, you can also use the Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) as an alternative to Java Web Start. JNLP is a Java technology that allows Java applications to be launched from a web browser without requiring a full installation of Java on the client machine. However, keep in mind that JNLP also has its own security concerns and limitations, so it's important to use it with caution.

Ultimately, the choice of replacement will depend on your specific use case and requirements.

We have a customer that has several applications that need javaws. The
newer java downloads no longer include them. They are using SEMARU 17 now.
Is there a reasonable replacement for javaws available?
