Please implement this feature quickly. My users also ask
for this feature...

Agreed; webstart isn't a viable option for most applications
until this is added. Moreover, there should be an API to do
this from the program. Since my users need to input some
initial settings anyway, I'd like to ask them if they want
to make a shortcut from my code rather than having web start
ask (this could be an option in the config file).

I agree. Everytime I have shown web start to someone, I have
to explain why you don't get the icon the first time, you
have to go back to the web page again or start web start,
then launch the app a second time. This is extremely counter
intuitive. Please fix this in the next release.

I have the same problem. It looks like is not fixed in JWS 1.2.
How long should we wait?

To be really Web Centric this is an absolute must, that this
feature can be set from the JNLP file. It is very time
consuming when you have a large user base and have to give
support for "Where's my shortcut gone!".
