Apache+Tomcat JNLP Save as Prompt

Im having problems hosting a JNLP file on Tomcat that i just downloaded from the tomcat.apache.org and installed. When I click on the jnlp link, The browser prompts me to Save or Open the jnlp file.. I don't want the browser to prompt me.. I've checked web.xml in ./conf directory and the JNLP mime type is properly set there..

I am wondering if I have to connect Tomcat to Apache first before this could work. What do you think? I already have an existing Apache webserver.

I have tested this JNLP problem on an embedded OC4J server, and the open process goes automatically, thats why i thought i'd only have to set some options with Tomcat.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
