Java web start is a helper application that gets associated with the web browser. We need to write a JNLP(Java Network launching protocol) file that when user clicks launches the web start which reads from the file and downloads and runs the application.

This application provides users launching the application by a simple click on the JNLP file. Rest is taken care by JAVA WEB START.
