Deployment stack is not open sourced (neither webstart nor plugin).
There is an open source implementation of it as part of [IcedTea project|http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/Main_Page] but this is not what you get if you use Java from Oracle.Huh, I did not know about that. Thanks!
You will use it if you are running IcedTea, e.g. openjdk packages provided by Linux distributors are IcedTea-based.
