Description
Name: jk109818			Date: 01/17/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.3.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0-C)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0-C, mixed mode)

FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]




A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Only JPG or GIF files are supported as Icon images in Java
Web Start JNLP file.  Although when running on Windows
operating system, Web Start converts this icon to an ICO,
you cannot specify an ICO as the source file.

Would greatly like ICO files to be supported by Web Start.

This bug can be reproduced always.

The specification was changed in 1.5.0 to allow any platform dependant format for icons, so the sub-catagory is changed from spec.  This needs to be implementated in mustang for ico type.
