QUESTION
----------------------------------
Why would SilkBean return the message "Application Registered - NULL" when invoking a Java application on Unix or Linux?

ANSWER
----------------------------------
Some applications are supplied with command-line parameters that make up the wording on the application"s initial startup screen. If one of these parameters supplies the title of the application (e.g. as part of a configurable installation launcher), SilkBean will not see the wording on the title bar and will return the application name as NULL.
