I think Java WebStart is one of the great technologies to help you with client-side Java applications. If you're new to JNLP and Java WebStart, here's some info on what to look for.
The home page for java webstart

Articles on Java Webstart
1. From IBM Developerworks

2. From Javaworld
http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-07-2001/jw-0706-webstart_p.html
3. From JavaPro
