I have been working on creating a WebStart application which is going to associate a couple of file types.
However, I noticed that several web start applications, including mine are not associating files as in other operating systems.
No Association Warnings replacement is displayed when an application already exists associating the same type of files.
Because of that, those files cannot be opened at the application when double click occurs.
I should mention that Info.plist of my application indicates that those file types are associated to it, but icons are not replaced and they are keeping the previous application icons.
If there is no previous application installed, blank icons are assigned to those files and when you try to open one, a warning message is displayed saying that "there is no application set to open the document".
I created a couple of dummy applications (attached), that can be installed via JNLP on Mac 10.6 to reproduce this behavior.
You may want to place the zip content on /Applications since JNLP codebase are pointing to that location.
I would like to know if this is an expected situation or if this is a known issue on this Mac platform (10.6).
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
