The Java Web Start player uses optional HREF attribute of JNLP element as a
key for the cache. The behavior of the player becomes unpredictable if two or
more applications has the same href value or do not have this attribute at
all. For example, it shows only one application instead of two.
How to reproduce:
Put 2 or more JNLP files in the same location, put their components in the
different directories and specify the correct codebase for them. Do not
specify the HREF attribute for the JNLP elements. Create a HTML page
listing all these JNLP descriptors and use its URL as a "Remote
applications URL" in the Java Web Start. The resulting list of the
applications will not be correct.
If you will add the HREF attribute to the JNLP elements of the descriptors
and their values will be different the application list will be correct.
