When using DownloadService.loadResource() to load either an application, applet, or component extension jnlp file, only the jnlp file is downloaded.
It would be far better if all the resources refered to by the jnlp file were also downloaded, such that it would be the same as importing the jnlp-file.
This should apply to other API's, such as loadPart(), that include an extension jnlp href.

EVALUATION I have implemented recursing thru the resources of a jnlp file when loadResource is called with a jnlp file
