I have a project that use Derby client DB, it should work trough the network, several clients can access it . Is it possible to make set up file by JNLP?
if not what's the way?

That all depends on what "work through the network" means. If you plan to distribute copies of your application to many computers, where they will run and do something via the network, then yes. Otherwise maybe, or no, depending on what your application's architecture is. Perhaps you could describe that.

Thanks for reply.
I should consider a computer as server that keeps database and another computers should be connected to that server via network (a local network like an office not internet) and they perform some ordinary tasks like inserting,updating,...

You can distribute applications using JNLP. Therefore it follows that you can distribute applications which connect to a server using JNLP.

No. JNLP is an app distribution mechanism, not a DB management mechanism. If the remote DB isn't running, then there's nothing the app can do about that.

In local mode, yes, but not in network mode. If you expect other clients to be able to connect to the DB, then you need to start it independently of your client app.
