    Trying to make java web start running on my 10.5.6 OS X PPC with a specific web app ( sparkom.com) .jnlp file but java seems to be unable to run, ( no caches to clean (user or system) they are empty, so jawaws didnot run at all. java -version : java version "1.5.0_16"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_16-b06-284)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_16-133, mixed mode, sharing)

    in the other hand, on a new disk, with a new clean install of OS X 10.5.6 ( with updates) NO problem at all. So, i need to reinstall and configure java to make it work on my current system.
    Maybe terminal commands ?

    1.5.0_16 is broken. There are known issues with it throwing incorrect MalformedURLExceptions in code:

    Unfortunately, since PPC and 32-bit Intel platforms won't ever get an upgrade path to JRE 1.6, your only option as an end user is to not upgrade to 1.5.0_16. The other option would be to ask your application developers to look at the following:

    This has been a known issue, especially for developers who use the JavaHelp system for providing application documentation, but as a user with a PPC machine, your only real option is to not upgrade your Java client to the latest version.
