I am very new in developing application under Linux.

I have a doubt regarding about the use of .desktop file to add an icon into the Ubuntu Unity toolbar.

I have the following .desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
#Exec=/usr/share/ConnectDataSpace/appl/launcher.sh
Exec=/usr/share/XCloud/appl/launcher.sh
Type=Application
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
#Name[en_US]=Connect Data Space
Name[en_US]=XCloud
#Name=Connect Data Space
Name=XCloud
Comment[en_US]=
Comment=
StartupNotify=true
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
#StartupWMClass=ConnectDataSpace
StartupWMClass=XCloud
#Icon=/usr/share/ConnectDataSpace/img/icoLauncher.png
Icon=/usr/share/XCloud/img/icoLauncher.png

My doubt is: What exactly represents the StartupWMClass=XCloud field of this file?

Tnx

Andrea
