I have a client/server java Application, as a .jar file, that the users use to launch directly!
Now i wanna perform that, by making it starting via an Applet!
My Question is : Can we make the applet launching that application in the same manner we do when we call a Servlet from an Applet?

Applet can't execute any application that resides on client machine. they have access to server side only.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
