Thanks for the bug report and the thoughts you have about the Java stuff and
sorry for the very long delay (Eclipse summit and vacations came between :/ )
I don't think, however that all of your suggestions make sense:
- *.java with java: ... did you mean *.class with java? *.java files are opened
with an editor, which makes sense as those files contain Java source code. If
you meant *.class with java, that would not make much sense neither, as in Java
not every *.class file has a main method.
- *.jar with java -jar: Would make sense in some cases, in most cases it
wouldn't. Jar files can -- but do not need to -- contain classes with a main
method. Most of the time, jars are just archives and should hence be opened
with an archiving program. Perhaps, one could write a wrapper script that
checks, whether it is just an archive or an executable archive.
- *.jnlp with javaws: that should be done, agreed. I will try to find out who
is responsible for that.
