After you asked Greg to change the plist key he posted a updated demo that now shows....
ls /Volumes/SwingSet2/
Info.plist	MacOS		PlugIns
JavaVM		PkgInfo		Resources

JavaVM. Something extra got picked up with the plist change maybe?

But after you mentioning that I did try just changing the directory manually to 'Java' but that doesn't seem to show launching at all and has this in console...
