Description
As part of 7143984 we added support to launch webstart app using following syntax:

===
var launchParams = {
    "url" : "dynamictree-webstart-no-codebase.jnlp",
    "ignoredparam" : "bb",
    "params" : {"aaa" : "111",
                "ccc" : "",
                "ignoredNonString": 4}};
el.launchApp(launchParams);
===

But it only work for NPAPI java plugin.

We need to support similar syntax for DT plugins too. It is enabling step for 7132539

EVALUATION Add support for NPAPI and ActiveX based DT plugins. We still support old syntax too, if first parameter is not complex object we will use old approach. With new approach we expect all parameter have string values except "params" element in the top level. "params" is expected to point to map.
