Alright, this is probably a very newbie question, however I've never used webstart before in my life.
I have looked all over the sun website and through this website, but it doesn't say anywhere.

How do I make a webstart link that will run my application?

-Make an application that runs from jars (eg all media loaded with relative pathes ala getClass().getResource(...) or getResourceAsStream(...))
-Ensure that your webserver has setup the jnlp mimetype correctly
-Write a jnlp file... it's pretty easy actually.

Either read the stuff here:

Or pickup a jnlp from someone else and edit the bits you want to change.

hmmm... I tried to copy the way you loaded the icon, Cas, and it won't work for me.  Any idea what's wrong with this?

Looks alright. It *should* work. Maybe caching is to blame?

Well, what also (should) work is using a path relative to the code base like:

<icon href="images/icon_tr.gif" width="32" height="32"/>
