      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      Java SE 7 update 4 developer preview

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1 64-bit

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      This version of the program, as well as future versions (JRE8, to name one) do not set file associations for JAR files. This can be a problem if the JAR is executable.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The JRE should be set to open JAR files, like version 7u2.
      ACTUAL -
      No file association.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      A possible workaround is to set the file association manually, but I don't know exactly what binary is used for this particular action.
