    Your JNLP file is really just an XML (text) file which points to a real JAR file somewhere out in the Internet. So the first step is to figure out where this JAR file resides, and download it to your computer.

    phoneME looks somewhat more promising (i.e., I don't believe that it's abandon-ware), for dealing with your JAR file. I've tried to do this (using JAR files on Android) unsuccessfully in the past, but that doesn't mean that it can't be done. In particular, if the JAR file uses relatively little Internet and Bluetooth connectivity, then there's a better chance of getting your example working.

    Good luck ...
