    55GLI Java Web Start application (replacement for GLI Applet) - Additional Steps

    7 Many browsers have stopped supporting Java applets, while Microsoft's Internet Explorer, and perhaps Microsoft Edge, still support it. For this reason, 3.09's GLI is now no longer provided as an applet, but has been converted into a Java Web Start application. 
     7Many browsers have stopped supporting Java applets including Microsoft Edge, though Microsoft's Internet Explorer still supported it. For this reason, 3.09's GLI is now no longer provided as an applet, but has been converted into a Java Web Start application.

    99Instructions for using the GLI Java Web Start, which works over the JNLP protocol, are below.

     535. Launch the Java Control Panel by running jre/bin/javacpl.exe on Windows, or jre/bin/jcontrol (formerly jre/bin/ControlPanel) on Linux. 
    5454(GS3 binaries now include a JRE in the packages folder if you want to use the bundled JRE.) 
    5555In the Java Control Panel, go to the Security tab, set Security level to High if not already set.

    69698. Since you have set up the JNLP file association in a previous step, you can now click on the "The Librarian Interface" link 
    70 and your browser should offer to save or launch a file called GLIappWebStart.jnlp: One of the applications for launching it 
    71 should be the Java Web Start application (javaws) that you associated with .jnlp file extensions. Choose that application as the launcher. 
     70and your browser should offer to save or launch a file called GLIappWebStart.jnlp. Click ''Open With'' and in the dropdown box beside it, one of the launcher applications should, at least on Windows, be the "Java(TM) Web Start Launcher" application (javaws) that you associated with .jnlp file extensions. Choose that application as the launcher. 
    7271If the browser is able to successfully launch it, Java Web Start will be used to run the GLI application indicated by the JNLP file. 
    73 If launching through the browser is not possible, then choose to save the JNLP file. 
     72If launching through the browser is not possible, for example, if the launcher application is not listed, as may happen on Linux machines, then choose to save the JNLP file. 
    7473It will download the file to a temporary user area (like C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp on windows). 
    7574And then you can rightclick on the downloaded GLIappWebStart.jnlp file, to launch it with the Java Web Start program you already 
    76 associated with this file type. 
     75associated with this file type. This way should work on both Linux and Windows.
