simple jnlp question

hello, I don't have much experience with jnlp... my question is about the jvm that launches the jnlp. I'm seeing a 'Java 7' when I open the jnlp file but I'm using the 1.6.0u37 jdk and haven't installed the 1.7 version
Which version launches the jnlp and how? This is browser independent, isn't it?
greetings

    You must have a JRE 7 installed.

    Certainly not! The question was:

    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.

    Hello user1107924

    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).
