Converting JWS app to standalone app

I have a jnlp file which contains a whole bunch of "property" and "jar" information. This jnlp file is for an application that was made by some other people.

I would like to launch this application as a standalone application without using java web start. What is the best way to do it?

One way is to use the -Dproperty=value option to the JVM to set the properties. But I do not wish to do that. I would like to create a .properties file and pass it to the application.

The jar files given in the jnlp, of course, can be put into the classpath, that is not the problem, but the property name value pairs are.
I agree. Here's the link:
