      Description

      Web Start applications can now specify requested JREs with their arch attributes, and select the first one available that matches, even if it is not the same arch (32 bit vs 64 bit) as the currently running JRE. For example, the JNLP content below would place first preference on 64 bit JDK8, and if not available, 32 bit JDK9:
      ```
      <resources arch="x86_64">
           <java version="1.8"/>
      </resources>
      <resources arch="x86">
          <java version="1.9"/>
      </resources>
      ```
      Note that in the above example, in order to launch a 64 bit 1.8 JRE, a 64 bit 9 JRE must be installed. If only a 32 bit 9 JRE is installed, the 64 bit 1.8 JRE is unavailable.
