Ok, so I downloaded the jnlp file to the desktop.
I am using sun's java:
java version "1.6.0_19"
installed under /usr/jdk
I right clicked on the CelsiusConverter.jnlp file.
In the dialog box, I selected the "Open with" tab.
I clicked the Add button.
Select "Use a custom command" and entered /usr/jdk/bin/javaws.
Closed all dialog windows.
Double clicked on the CelsiusConverter.jnlp icon on the desktop.
Javaws lauched the app and I converted temperatures.
