Description
The implementation is based totally on
freedesktop.org specs, is 100% Java, and solves a couple of issues in
one go. The issues addressed are summarized here:

http://j2se.sfbay.sun.com/web/bin/view/Deployment/JavaWebstartUnix

But only the shortcut and association related parts.

The shortcut implementation is fairly complete I believe, the
associations unfortunately not. Maybe you can pull this apart and commit
the shortcut part, and continue the associations later or so.
