unable to read or parse jnlp file for Android

Asked by John Wilson on 2011-09-08

Still trying to get my Android to work with Ubuntu and having trouble getting the Androidweb cast to work. It seems to need to be activated but when I try to I get an error message.
Here is the output:
john@john-775Dual-880Pro:~/Android$ javaws <jnlp file>
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
Any suggestions as to the correct syntax?

Did you actually type "<jnlp file>" ? If so, this is incorrect.

You are meant to replace the bit inside the angle brackets <> with the actual name of the file you wish to load.

for example, if you have a jnlp file called "my-java-webstartthing.xml", and it is in the current directory (ie ~/Android), then type:

javaws my-java-webstartthing.xml
