That's tough. I believe there are commercial tools available that help in this, but they don't (and probably can't) do a perfect job - lots of manual rework is required.

The easiest way to put the app on the web is probably to change it from a standalone application to an applet or a Java Web Start application. Or does it have to be a proper web app based on HTML?

In theory, JavaFX can use Swing classes to create online applications. This is new stuff but has a lot of potential.

But the resulting application is -conceptually- still an applet or JWS app, not what is commonly called a web app, no? It would still need the client-side JVM.

Well, yes, JavaFX does require a JVM on the client side, but according to this FAQ, a JavaFX script will be able to run standalone or in a browser environment.

I have not actually tried this, but it is certainly being pushed heavily by Sun.
