I have a IcedTea plugin for TopCoder Arena. I used it till a week back. But today when I am trying to launch the arena, it is showing this error

Fatal: Initialization Error: Could not initialize application. This application has not been initialized, for more information, execute javaws from the command line.

Anyone, please help in knowing what the problem is and how to fix it.

Close all Java applications(browsers etc..) and try clearing your cache from terminal:

javaws -Xclearcache

Worked for me.

If it doesn't work then wait until someone aswers this question: Unable to start topcoder arena in Ubuntu 14.04
