File Format Description

File created in the Java Network Launching Protocol (JNLP) format; used for launching and managing Java programs over a network or on the Web (e.g., an applet in a Web browser); can be double-clicked to run the program if the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed.

JNLP files contain information such as the remote address for downloading the Java program (.JAR file) and the initial class to run. They are saved in an XML format and can be viewed or edited with a text editor.

NOTE: The JRE includes Java Web Start technology, which opens JNLP files and runs the specified instructions.
