I have an existing applet/application ( runs both ways) that when used as an applet in a browser communicates to the server via http tunneling to
do RMI calls and as a application calls RMI directly on local LAN. Will this still work under webstart?
And if so can I drop the http tunneling and call
the RMI direct over the web if the server RMI port is open? Wondering if anyone else tried this
and what issues they ran into.
Thanks in advance.
Ken

Ken --
I can give you a partial answer to your question.
I'm using WebStart with HTTP Tunneling to make calls to a remote server, and it works just fine. I have not used it over a LAN.
As for dropping the HTTP Tunneling, I've found I have to have it to get through my company's firewall to our remote servers. So you may be able to drop it if you can guarantee that your users won't be behind firewalls.
Hope this helps,
Chris
