Description
On Vista and win7, java plugin always based on the "java.home" system property to find the jp2launcher and launch that version.

Since java fx can be installed on top of a JRE (6u10 or above) and fx install dir contains a newer version of jp2launcher, java plugin should use the jp2launcher from the fx install dir if it's available.

Comments
EVALUATION Modify JVMLauncher to using Environment.getDeploymentHomePath() to get the path to jp2launcher.
