Mauro,
In the "Welcome to JavaRanch" thread, you mentioned that Web Start uses XML files to configure some of what it does, where it looks, etc.
Is there a nice GUI tool to use with web Start, or are we (temporarily, I hope) doomed to fight our way through using nothing more than a simple text editor?

Well,
Actually I was meaning the current JNLP files themselves. For JNLP client configuration there are properties files stored in the guts of the Java WebStart directory, but Sun discourages any edit to them, so far.
There are some JNLP IDE so far, some free.
In a following post I'll give some fresh URL,
Cheers,
Mauro

.jnlp file by itself, & extensions are the only xml file Webstart uses for config info. Webstart does not provide any GUI tool for editing the jnlp file.
