JNLP is driving me crazy, please help

I am running some tests on JNLP and have created this very small class:

package itccms;
public class fulford {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
  }
}

I know it does nothing but I am just testing my setup.

I created the JNLP file as follows:

<? header ("Content-Type: application/x-java-jnlp-file"); ?>
<jnlp codebase="http://localhost/itccms/" href="itccms.jnlp">
      <information>
            <title>ITCCMS UK IT Department</title>
            <vendor>Test Vendor</vendor>
            <homepage href="http://localhost/itccms/" />
            <description kind="short">Change Control Monitor</description>
            <offline-allowed />
      </information>
      <resources>
              <j2se version="1.4+ 1.3+"/>
              <jar href="itccms.jar"/>
            </resources>
<application-desc main-class="fulford">

</application-desc>

    </jnlp>

I am using Apache running under Windows 2000
When I call my site HTTP://localhost/itccms the directory of the site is displayed and I can see the .JAR and the .JNLP in the root of this directory. When I click on the JNLP file, it starts up, but I keep getting this error:

JNLPException[category: Launch File Error : Exception: null : LaunchDesc:

<jnlp spec="1.0+" codebase="http://localhost/itccms/" href="http://localhost/itccms/itccms.jnlp">

  <information>

    <title>ITCCMS UK IT Department</title>

    <vendor>Test Vendor</vendor>

    <homepage href="http://localhost/itccms/"/>

    <description></description>

    <description kind="short">Change Control Monitor</description>

    <description kind="one-line"></description>

    <description kind="tooltip"></description>

    <offline-allowed/>

  </information>

  <resources>

    <j2se initial-heap-size="-1" max-heap-size="-1" version="1.4+ 1.3+"/>

    <jar href="http://localhost/itccms/itccms.jar" download="eager" main="false"/>

  </resources>

  <application-desc main-class="fulford"/>

</jnlp> ]

      at com.sun.javaws.LaunchDownload.getMainClassName(Unknown Source)

      at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.continueLaunch(Unknown Source)

      at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.handleApplicationDesc(Unknown Source)

      at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.handleLaunchFile(Unknown Source)

      at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.run(Unknown Source)

      at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

Where Have I gone wrong? My can't it see the jar file (I assme that's the problem because I moved it to a sub folder and got the same error).

Any help appreciated

Arrggghhh! It could not be that easy (sure I tried that!). Obvious when you think of it!

Yep does work! (hides face in embarassement).

Cheers Objects once again you did it.
