Java Store application cleanup

I assume that most of the people in the Java community have already noticed that the Java team at Sun has released a beta version of the Java Store. Lots of details about the launch can be read here. If you are a consumer that uses the store, you have several options of installing and uninstalling the applications that you've installed from the store. I'll focus on the more obscure ways of uninstalling apps on Windows:

  • end user - launch the store, open the My Apps menu and uninstall at will
  • advanced user - launch the Start | Control Panel | Programs | Uninstall a program | look for the application by name, select it and choose Uninstall from the menu of the Windows application
  • developer - Open the Java Control Panel (Start | Control Panel | Choose Classic View | Java | General | Settings; here you either choose to delete all files or follow the path (e.g. C:\\Users\\<username>\\AppData\\LocalLow\\Sun\\Java\\Deployment\\cache) to where the apps are installed and give it your best shot. I really don't recommend doing this
  • hacker - javaws -uninstall <jnlp app name>; note that if you just call javaws -uninstall it will uninstall all Java Web Start apps from your system
