I can start the swing application using the JNLP file and it will down load the latest jar from some webserver.
While running the application thru webstart,similar to JSP, can each request from swing client be directed to the webserver to fetch the data from remote database

Just code a session bean and deploy it in an app server and use it in your swing application to retrive data from your database. Alternatively, u can just use JDBC.
