#### Bundle contents
From the point of view of the application manager, a web application is
just an [app-bundle] containing a [graphical program].
See the [Application Bundle Specification] for a normative specification
of what each app-bundle must provide.
This is a non-normative summary:
* a `.desktop` [entry point] that provides
the metadata needed to display
the application in the application menu
* an [executable script]
with the `Exec` field in the `.desktop` file
pointing to this script
* an [AppArmor profile] to
[enforce isolation between application bundles][Security between applications]
* application files (HTML, JS, CSS, images, etc.) as
[generic resource data]
The web runtime shipped with the platform
will provide the [shared launcher][Shared web runtime launcher]
which is used to interpret the executable scripts
and launch the web application with the appropriate runtime.
