When this auto-update discussion last came up, I forwarded this thread to Rene
Schmidt, the JNLP / Java Web Start guy, and he said:

... where James is presumably JDD.

It does seem like this feature is just a variation on JNLP. To me this sounds
like a library taken from part of the Java Web Start implementation, that has
no GUI, or an optional GUI or something. You'd also need a mode where it would
never throw anything away from its JAR cache, since this feature would be
geared more toward standalone apps than "web-like" apps that are always
connected to the Internet.
