You must have a JRE 7 installed.
Which version launches the jnlp and how?The answer is: the runtime installed, which just happens to be java 6. The second question was how: through Java webstart. Java 6 is perfectly capable to webstart software.
Of course it will see that Java 7 is required in the JNLP file and then refuse service ;)
Yeah yeah I know, you were drilling through to the real question behind the question. Just let me dream.
I think you were asking why does the Java splash screen show Java 7 when you only have Java 6 installed? I have seen this too.
In my experience it has been when Java 7 has previously been installed and then uninstalled somehow the spash screen still shows a Java version that no longer exists. Not sure why. JWS is generally pretty flaky and there are a couple of people on these boards who are full of contempt for all questions which doesn't help (see the 2nd response).
