Running the sample from http://www.mkyong.com/java/java-web-start-jnlp-tutorial-unofficial-guide/ and all it does is prompt me to download the JNLP file which it does and then opens it in Wordpad.

What step is missing to get this sample to run properly?

Attempted another sample. This time nothing was happening.
Attempted to run it via the command prompt using javaws and was receiving an error.
Long story short I had to change my Java Security settings from High to Medium and now both samples work.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
