Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7.2 Administration Guide

Customizing the Application (Java Web Start)

If you are running Instant Messenger using Java Web Start, you can modify the im.jnlp, imres.jnlp, and imres.jar files to customize the user interface. The following are modifications that can be made to these files:

Example 15–1 Sample im.jnlp File

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- Instant Messenger -->
    <title>Instant Messaging</title>
    <homepage href=""/>
    <description>I-Zed’s Sun Java System Instant Messenger</description>
    <description kind="short">Instant Messenger</description>
    <icon href="CompanyLogo.gif"/>
    <j2se version="1.3+">
        <jar href="en/imres.jar"/>
        <jar href="en/imbrand.jar"/>
    <jar href="messenger.jar"/>
    <jar href="imdesktop.jar"/>
    <jar href="imnet.jar"/>
    <jar href="icalendar.jar"/>
    <nativelib href="imjni.jar"/>
  <application-desc main-class="">

Note –

In the im.jnlp file, the argument <argument>servername</argument> represents the Instant Messaging multiplexor host and port. If you change the default value of the iim_mux.listenport parameter, you need to change the servername value to host.domain:port.
