Is running "servlets" enough or do you need full fledged Jigsaw style hosting on IIS for Java?

Running Java servlets on IIS:

What I want to do is run a Java application via Java Web Start, so I need more the servlets, correct?

If you look here: http://java.sun.com/javase/technologies/desktop/javawebstart/faq.html#7 it doesn't look like it is supported for Windows higher than Windows 2000. So IIS 7.0 is certainly not supported. Maybe someone has done it though I don't know.

What are the server requirements for Java Web Start?

Java Web Start uses HTTP for communication between the client and the server. You can use a standard web server to host an application. If you require additional services, such as version-based downloading, incremental updates, or pack200 compression for your applications, the web server will need to support servlets or Java Server Pages. A sample servlet implementing these features is provided in the samples directory of the JDK.

I believe for  basic Java Web Start you don't need anything else but just HTTP server, as the information above from the
webstart faq states:

you don't need java on the server to server up a jnlp application
jnlp applications run on the client

all you need is IIS
should just need to configure the mime type
