Java Web Start is just a mechanism for downloading and running a Java Application. That means that you debug a JWS application the same way you would any other Application and you don't need JWS at all for the development and testing of the Java code.

Once you have your application ready for production, you'd then deploy it to a web server along with the JWS .jnlp that describes it and debug the JWS download/install itself to ensure that your jnlp config info is correct.
