Hi Edward,

the new plugin code and the web start haven't been released as part of 
OpenJDK yet. They should become part of
OpenJDK in a few months :


but at this point, if you want to send in a patch the plugin & webstart 
implementation in Sun's JDK, you should do
it through the corresponding projects on java.net.

If you are using a Linux distributions, they typically distribute 
OpenJDK 6 with an independent plugin and web
start implementation, coming from the IcedTea project - so if you want 
to submit a patch to that code base, the
best way to go about it is to send it to the distro-pkg-dev mailing list.
