How to prevent creation of a shortcut on the launch of java webstart?

By default Web Start pops the desktop-shortcut-icon-creation question on the second launch.
To prevent the creation of the short cut, we can adjust the shortcut tab in preferences of WebStart Application Manager to "never install shortcuts".
But, i want to prevent the creation of shortcut with out changing the preferences of WebStart Application. i want to do this through some programming logic or setting some properties in jnlp file.
Can anybody help me to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance

hmm haven�t tried it before and don�t think its possible unless you hack in to jnlp packages,
Why is it an issues if they create shortcuts
Even crazy and silly looking problems are sometimes real.
