OpenJDK doesn't come with java webstart. Sun seems to prefer to keep
this proprietary. But luckily the OpenJDK package in Debian is based on
IcedTea (http://icedtea.classpath.org/) which comes with a free
alternative implementation based on netx. You can find the classes in
rt.jar (although based on what you say above maybe they should go in a
separate jar file, if so, please file a bug report).
