First of all, "Java web start" and a "web server" are two different things. Although, Java web start does use a web server to deploy applications, there is little in common. Please don't confuse them.

How to setup a web server depends on the server. The most commonly used one is probably Tomcat, which is a Java application, and can run Java applications bundled as Servlets, or compiled to servlets from JSP pages. So, if your Java codes are servlets, then you can start Tomcat via a JVM, and have Tomcat start your java code.
