jnlp file

Hi. I'm trying to understand how an applet manages to play offline. I downloaded an applet from here http://www.checkmypages.com/chess/
The jnlp file is -

But there is no chess.jar file on my system. I used the tree command to search \Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache and I located two files
641,560 4d6db938-74a77288
9,030 4d6db938-74a77288.idx

Does Java encode file names or something?
Thanks in advance.

As the JNLP file shown you, you can download the chess.jar from the following link: chess.jar

Thanks but my question was really about the cached files. I don't think the chess.jar file is stored locally on the machine as such (unless the filename has changed). Are the cached files Java bytecode?
And since chess.jar is not present on the local disk, how does the jnlp file point to the next file?
