Run a Java Web Start (javaws) application on a Mac OS with AdoptOpenJDK-11 runtime

I had the situation that I needed to run a Java Web Start (javaws) application on a mac BigSur OS and AdoptOpenJDK-11 runtime. The OpenWebStart project provided me what I needed in that situation.

I didn’t want to install an older runtime like Java 8 and manage different runtimes only for the execution of the Java Web Start (javaws) application.

After the installation and short configuration on my Mac, I had only to invoke the Java Web Start application and it worked.

Really simple, that’s awesome 🤩

I hope this was useful for you and let’s see what’s next?
