> I think OpenJDK is anything but dead
As Dalibor already mentioned I was talking about
jdk-collaboration.dev.java.net, not OpenJDK.
JDK-collboration is basically dead, almost no-one uses it anymore and
also Sun devs seem to ignore whats happening there.

Yes, I know the webstart implementation integrated in IcedTea.
However I've heard some rumors that it shouldn't take long until we
see Sun's implementation open-sourced, so I don't want to work on code
that will be replaced sooner or later.
Furthermore I have already written some specific patches for Sun's
implementation and well, nothing important just a few clean-ups - but
as it seems at jdk-collaboration no one is watching at all.
