Hi
Why Eclipse don't have out of the box a facility as in Netbeans to deploy / export Java application for WebStart JNLP
this feature is a must have , it is not an extra.
The product is so heavy with a full of options that most developers don't need , but lack this crucial but simple feature.
An open tool must give his users the option to work "OPEN" and not through the Oracle cloud and such...

Why?

JDT knows nothing about JNLP indeed (that's by design).
I suggest you ask in a forum where people do know about web technologies, like https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/251/

Hi
Thank you for your reply
But this issue is not only for web projects
I think that the deployment stage is one part and important one from the Java development process

Of course, deployment is an essential part of any software development.
As per the architecture of Eclipse, JDT implements only the most universal approach: exporting a jar file.
Everything beyond that is specific to either a target platform or a particular build technology.

See, e.g., that the Maven integration (m2e) seamlessly lets you create any kind of deployment for which a maven plugin exists.
PDE and tycho are there to deploy any OSGi/Equinox/RCP application.
Etc.

Lot's of other technologies exist, for which specific export wizards etc. are provided.

The Eclipse community has tons of functionality on offer, it may only be slightly difficult to find, which component (plug-in) provides which function.
The Eclipse packages try to mitigate this by packaging typical sets of plug-ins into one download.
For anything with "Web" in its name you should probably start from either "Eclipse IDE for JavaScript and Web Developers" or "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers", which may have the function you are looking for.
And if not, then the web tools forum will have better answers than we (JDT) can provide.

HTH,
Stephan
