The jnlp file's one and only root.
- 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.
- Specifies the version of the application as well as the version of the jnlp file itself.
- Specifies the codebase for the application. Codebase is also used as base URL
for all relative URLs in
- 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.
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.
