Execute / Open JNLP files on Linux – Ubuntu / Debian / Fedora / Arch

The Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) is a protocol which enables an application to be launched on a client desktop by using resources that are hosted on a remote web server. Java Plug-in software and Java Web Start software are considered JNLP clients because they can launch remotely hosted applets and applications on a client desktop.
