Issue with jnlp

Below is the jnlp code that i have in the jnlp file:

<?xml version="1.0" enconding="utf-8"?>
<jnlp spec="1.0"
                    href="path to jnlp on web server">
            <title>Some Title</title>
            <homepage href="homepage url"/>
            <vendor>Vendor name</vendor>
            <description> Some Description</description>
            <jar href="/folder/jar1.jar"/>
            <jar href="/folder/jar2.jar"/>
            <jar href="/folder/jar3.jar"/>
            <jar href="/folder/jar4.jar"/>
            <jar href="/folder/jar5.jar"/>
      <application-desc main-class="My Main class"/>

Some reason I'm getting this error when trying to run it:

MissingFieldException[ The following required field is missing from the launch file: <jnlp>(<application-desc>|<applet-desc>|<installer-desc>|<component-desc>)]
      at com.sun.javaws.jnl.XMLFormat.parse(
      at com.sun.javaws.jnl.LaunchDescFactory.buildDescriptor(
      at com.sun.javaws.jnl.LaunchDescFactory.buildDescriptor(
      at com.sun.javaws.jnl.LaunchDescFactory.buildDescriptor(
      at com.sun.javaws.Main.launchApp(
      at com.sun.javaws.Main.main(

but i have the <application-desc on the next to last line.

Anyone know what the problem may be? Thanks

main-class should be a fq class name, e.g.

<application-desc main-class="">

This is how i have it, but don't understand why it throws the error
<application-desc main-class="mypackage.mainclass">
tbboyettAuthor Commented:
Ok, the problem for that error was i forgot the / on the ending </resources>

but now i get another error stating No JRE version found in launch file for this system.

Do i need to somehow specify which JRE to use?
    <j2se version="1.4.2"/>
    <jar href="xyz.jar"/>

The following explains the j2se element...........

The j2se element specifies what Java 2 SE Runtime Environment (JRE) versions an application is supported on, as well as standard parameters to the Java Virtual Machine.  If several JREs can are specified, this indicates a prioritized list of the supported JREs, with the most preferred version first.  For example:

       <j2se version="1.3" initial-heap-size="64m"/>
       <j2se version="1.4+"/>

The version attribute refers, by default, to a platform (specification) version of the Java 2 platform. Currently defined platform version are 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4. (A platform version may optionally contain a micro version number; e.g., 1.4.2.)

Exact product versions (implementation versions) may also be specified—e.g., 1.3.1_01 or 1.4.2-beta by Sun Microsystems, Inc.—by including the href attribute. E.g.,

    <j2se version="1.3.1_01" href=""/


    <j2se version="1.4.2-beta" href=""/>

If a platform version is specified (i.e., no href attribute is provided), Java Web Start will not consider an installed non-FCS (i.e., milestone) JRE as a match. E.g., a request of the form

    <j2se version="1.4+">

would not consider an installed 1.4.1-ea or 1.4.2-beta JRE as a match for the request. Starting with 1.3.0, a JRE from Sun Microsystems, Inc., is by convention a non-FCS (milestone) JRE if there is a dash (-) in the version string.
