Does anyone know if an EJB app client can be packaged and provisioned on demand using Java Webstart technology with a JNLP file?

It is simple, you only put the jnlp file on web app directory, the jnlp have the structure like following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="GB2312"?>
<!-- JNLP File for The Gdlthr Client Application -->
<jnlp spec="1.0+" codebase="" href="app/gdlthr.jnlp">
<title>ABC application</title>
<vendor>ABC Ltd</vendor>
<homepage href=""/>
<description>the discription about abc application</description>
<icon href="logo.gif"/>
<j2se version="1.4.1* 1.3.1* 1.4*" href=""/>
<jar href="app/gdlthr-client.jar" main="true"/>
<jar href="lib/alloy.jar"/>
<jar href="lib/F1Book.jar"/>
<jar href="lib/servlet.jar"/>
<jar href="lib/jcommon-0.8.8.jar"/>

Hi Along,
I used a Java Web Starter client before, right now the server does not exist anymore, is any way to remove the Java Web Starter stuff from client side? Thanks.
