<description>

<description>..</description>

Describes the application in a single line, in a paragraph or in a couple of words for a tooltip.

Only one description of each kind can be specified. A description without a kind is used as a default description. Thus, if Web Start needs a description of kind short, and it can't be found in the jnlp file, then the default description's text is used instead.

All descriptions contain plain text only. No formatting such as HTML tags is supported.

Attributes

kind=one-line|short|tooltip, optional
Indicates the use of a description element. i) one-line, for a one-line description, ii) short, for a one paragraph description, and iii) tooltip, for a tool-tip description. Longer descriptions should be put on a separate web page and referred to using the homepage element.

Attributes

spec=version , optional
Specifies what versions of the jnlp spec a jnlp file works with. The default value is 1.0+. Thus, you can typically leave it out.
version=version , optional
Specifies the version of the application as well as the version of the jnlp file itself.
codebase=url , optional
Specifies the codebase for the application. Codebase is also used as base URL for all relative URLs in href attributes.
href=url , optional
Contains the location of the jnlp file as a URL. If you leave out the href attribute, Web Start will disable the update check on your JNLP file, and Web Start will not treat each new JNLP file as an application update - only updated jar files will. Leaving out href usually makes only sense if your jnlp file is created dynamically (that is, throug a cgi-script, for example) and if your jnlp file's arguments or properties change from request to request (user to user).
Note, that Java Web Start needs href to list your app in the Web Start Application Manager.

<nativelib>

<nativelib/>

Describes a jar containing native libraries (e.g. .dll, .so).

All native libraries must be stored in the jar's root directory (that is, /) and follow the proper platform-specific naming convention (that is, *.dll on Windows and lib*.so on Linux/Solaris).

Native libraries are typically included in a resources section that applies to a particular operating system or processor architecture only.

Note, that your are responsible to load the native libaries in your app yourself using calls to System.loadLibrary (e.g. System.loadLibrary( "j3daudio" )). You also need to figure out the right loading order to avoid dependency conflicts. Note, also that you need to drop the native lib's file ending in the System.loadLibrary call.

href=url , required
Specifies the location of the jar containing native libraries.
version=version , optional
Describes the version of the jar containing native libraries.
download=eager|lazy, optional

Values that only match the beginning of os.name are also valid (e.g. if you specify Windows and the os.name is Windows 98, for example, everything works out fine). See os and arch Codes for os values for various operating systems. Note, that a space that is part of the key must be preceded with a backslash (\). For example, Windows\ 95 Window \98 specifies Windows 95 and Windows 98.

<security>

<security>..</security>

Describes the application's security requirements.

By default every application runs in a restricted execution environment (aka sandbox). If an app runs in a secure sandbox, it must follow these restrictions:

  • No access to local disk.
  • All your jars must be downloaded from the same host. Note, however, that you can download extensions and JREs from any host as long as they are signed and trusted.
  • Network connections are allowed only to host from which your jars were downloaded. ("Phone home restriction.")
  • No security manager can be installed.
  • No native libraries (not even in extensions).
  • Limited access to system properties. (The application has read/write access to all system properties defined in the jnlp file, as well as read-only access to the same set of properties as applets (see System Properties Available for Unsigned Apps for a complete list).)

If you specify all-permissions, the app can do whatever it wants and has full access to the user's machine and local network.
