:: Notam Map :: Launch ::

The application is launched using Java Web Start. This is a mechanism by which a Java application can be downloaded, installed and run seamlessly from a couple of mouse clicks on a web browser.

It should be possible to run it on any platform that supports the Java environment but does require a version 1.6.0 or later of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment). If a suitable version is not already installed on your then you can download the latest from http://www.java.com/.

With the Java Runtime Environment installed you can click on the icon below to download and run Notam Map:

Launch Notam Map

Once the program is installed on the desk top it can be run offline although it will attempt to connect back to the host to see if a later version of the software is available. If it can connect and there is a new version then this will be downloaded, installed and run instead.

:: Trouble Shooting ::

If the application does not launch as expected then the most likely reason is that your browser is not recognising the launch file for what it is and this might require a bit of manual intervention. Whatever browser you are using the important thing is to ensure that it recognises that files ending in .jnlp and returning a MIME type of x-java-jnlp-file are associated with the Java Web Start program javaws. This can usually be found in the bin directory of the Java Runtime installation.
