I want to Launch Web start from Java

I would like to be able to launch Web Start from another java class. I've noticed in the javaws.jar file there is a Main class with a main method. But I can't seem to get it to run (I get an error about properties not being set).
Can any one give me some help?

Couldn't you just exec javaw.exe on the JNLP file?
