Java Webstart is one of the most attractive technologies from Sun. Webstart has the ability to launch Java APPLICATIONS using any browser, any platform, from anywhere in the web. Take a look at this exciting technology info at http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/?frontpage-javaplatform Looking forward to more people using it and hence more discussions, Later, Hema
so do i I hope more and more apps are deployed using jnlp and webstart. They seem to be ideal candidates for intranet deployments too Cheers Jayram ------------------ What if this is as good as it gets ?
I'm really curious about WebStart. Does anyone know if the database could reside on a remote server? If so it seems this would be an ideal solution for Application Service Providers, which is why I'm interested.
Wait a minute, I'm trying to think of something clever to say...<p>Joel
We've been using Web Start on our commercial site http://www.i2brain.com/en_demo.php for a few months. Although most users have reported no problems, there is a minority who do report quirks and incomprehensible and insurmountable problems with firewalls, browsers etc.. And of course I don't know how many try, fail, and don't report problems.
Another serious problem is that Java has to be installed first. I might well move over to InstallAnywhere soon to avoid a lot of these problems.
So, unfortunately, Web Start isn't the major breakthrough we were hoping for.
