I've spent a few hours Googling and searching through the OpenJDK webpage, but I can't seem to find a place to download the source for Web Start (javaws.jar, deployment.jar). Was Java Web Start released as open source yet? (or close source but still viewable?)
The reason I'm interested is I'm having an issue with the version of Java Web Start included in 1.6 update 7. My application worked fine with update 6, but Web Start consistently crashes (before my application starts) without any errors, logs, or dump files generated with update 7. I'm going to open a bug report, but would like to do some investigation into the problem myself before opening a too-general sounding bug report.
Any pointers or suggestions would be most welcome.
