Java Web Start does not support Jar Indexing which is a part of
the Jar File Spec. In stead it has "eager" and "lazy" mode of
download of the jar files. The problem is that we have to mention
all the jar file names, some of our apps has 120 jar files, in the
jnlp file with download=lazy set. It would be of great help to stick
to the standard on-demand load of the jar files through Jar Indexing.
Even when you specify download=lazy, it is unclear how the Java Web
Start finds out the class,jar file mapping.

The workaround is to have download=lazy for all the jar files.
