Related Content for jnlp style content is implemented by calling Main.importApp() to import the associated application, letting the shortcut be created by the import.
but if preference in control panel is not always allow, shortcut will not be created.

In this case it should always be created, ie, when silently importing the app, we should add -shortcut to the args.

EVALUATION Main.importApp() should set CreateShortcut to true. testcase at: /net/testbase-east/misc/deployment/javaws/tiger-unit/4812563. see testcase 1 except w/o shortcutr mode = "Always". If you accept prompt for shortcuts, all related content should be integrated.
