Me neither. This is what I figured the last week trying to support some users.

Yes I can see it now. is read by the shell. Nice.

In my tests I wasn't able to pass any args to the application jvm via
jnlp. I don't know what 'based on enumeration' means though.

I would think to have it open only for developers or users that are
debugging jnlp loading issues. For normal users with working setups I
would prefer it to be closed. The original netx implementation had
only one java console not two and this surprises and annoys some
users. Anyway if there was a config option to auto close after jvm
startup that would be great and more than enough.

Thank you very much for all the insights and the welcoming atmosphere.
I will try to play with application  name setups and the rust launcher
and maybe I can provide feedback in PR form.
