Description
On UNIX running GNOME only

create a JNLP applications, and create shortcuts in a existing folder.

e.g

<shortcut>
   <menu submenu="Internet"/>
</shortcut>

which the "Internet" folder contains Netscape and Mozilla currently.

After the jnlp shortcut is created, it will only show the shortcut of the jnlp application; shortcuts exists before won't be shown.

If you uninstall the jnlp application, the original shortcuts will be restored.

For GNOME in solaris, to fix the problem, we can just add the line:

<Parent>applications-all-users:///foldername</Parent> into the <folder> block that we create for this folder in the applications.vfolder-info file.

We also need to remove the <query> tags that we added to make it work in Solaris.

However, this will break the implementation in GNOME for linux.  The query tags are needed for the new shortcut to showup, plus it seems like the <Parent> tag has no effect here.

Also when I try to manually add a shortcut to a existing menu in linux GNOME, it says "unsupported operation"; not sure if this is something that will work in linux.  (tried RH AS 3.0)

More investigation needed.

SUGGESTED FIX

We can use gnome vfs function to create a short cut.
For examples: 
On Gnome environment, writing a desktop entry file with it's vfs path like "applications://Games/MyGame.desktop" will create a start menu shortcut  under Gnome menu "Applications -> Games"
