A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
For Webstart applications that get launched on system startup it is annoying to the end-user to have to see a splash screen. This is further aggravated by the fact that the system loads applications slower on startup so the splash screen will likely remain visible far longer than normal.
The JNLP descriptor should be able to specify that the application does not wish to display any splash screen on startup.
A separate descriptor tag should also be added which will allow the "online" applications to update without showing any UI either, unless an update failure occured.
The expected behavior is for the application to run on startup, update itself and begin running, all without any visible UI.
For example, in my application's case, I simply want it to add itself to the system tray on startup.
Current behavior annoys end-users
