We migrated the WidgetFX instance to a new server that has a number of benefits:
- Higher level of uptime via hotswap deployments
- Newer, more reliable server
- Support for a content management system for Widget distribution (coming soon)
Depending upon how fast the DNS changes propagated, you may have noticed some downtime if you launched the dock in the past 24 hours while we worked out some of the kinks on the new server.
In particular, if your dock launches with an error of “<jnlp>codebase has an invalid value: $$codebase” then you might have a bad jnlp file wedged in your cache. It will eventually unwedge itself (jnlp caching is a black art), but you can fix it immediately by doing the following:
Open the Java Control Panel and click on “Settings…”:
The next time you load the dock it will get a clean copy of the jnlp file and jars. (Good housekeeping anyway, because a large jnlp cache can cause performance problems.)
