I am developing an application using
There are two problems:
1) I am using the FileOpenService.
When I run the application in Eclipse, my application
gets an UnavailableServiceException
Caused by: javax.jnlp.UnavailableServiceException: uninitialized
at javax.jnlp.ServiceManager.lookup(Unknown Source)
This exception occurs when I try running the code in the IDE environment (Eclipse 3.0 M9)
How can I resolve this?
2) I want to be able to set debug breakpoints in the application
as it is running inside the Java WebStart JVM.
How can I do this?
Sun's developer documentation and FAQ do not address either of these issues.

For your first problem, it looks like you don't have a *.jnlp file to configure Java Web Start. You will need this file anytime you use web start, otherwise ServiceManager.lookup() will throw an UnavailableServiceException. Check out
for more information.
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: FileOpenService, uninitialized
How can I make use of WebStart?
start your Java virtual machine with Spring's agent: -javaagent:org.springframework.instrument.jar
my applet not working
JREs and webstart bundle..
