Selection of a JRE version is not working for JNLP-launched applets. The version needs to be extracted from the JNLP file and a determination made whether a relaunch is necessary based on information such as the currently running JRE version and the versions of other installed JREs on the system.

SUGGESTED FIX http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u10/6663557.0

EVALUATION Added rudimentary support for JRE version selection in JNLP-launched applets. Detects if the currently running JRE version does not satisfy the request in the JNLP file and relaunches the applet specifying java_version if not. More optimization is possible and will be done in future putbacks. Auto-download support will also be implemented in a future putback. Also included a few minor code cleanups.
