Hi folks,
having finally found and installed the a.m. (HardFP) distro on my Raspberry Pi I noticed, that I'm still not able to run .jnlp files from the website I planned to open...

Can it be that javaws is missing (also in JDK8)? Am I wrong in thinking I need it to open (i.e. run) .jnlp files? What alternatives do I have to get .jnlp delivered from a website running (on platform Raspberry Pi / OS raspbian, current distribution Release Date 2013-08-17 / Version wheezy / Kernel 3.6?

Thanks for your support! And sorry, if these may be stupid questions...
