I have been writing a program with JSP/Servlet and EJBs for Intranet usage for about 6 months. When it is completed,it will a complicated program with several heavy modules such as ERP,CRM, etc. During program testing, I saw that HTML restrict us to design complicated user interface and input validation. Now, I think Applets for an alternative to HTML but I have no knowledge about Applets and how it will fit our project compared with JSP/Servlet(HTML based) solution.
Would you help me about alternatives for a complicated multithreaded program design.

I would suggest you take a look at Java WebStart. It basically allows you to write a Java application and deploy it across a network using JNLP. This gives you the benefit of a rich client and centralized code management, without the headaches of Applets. We have successfully been using WebStart for the last year and have only run into a few minor issues. It is a great technology.
JavaRanch also has a dedicated JNLP and Web Start Forum if you have questions.

I see you posted this same message in the Applets forum. Please avoid cross-posting in the future. Many of us read multiple forums and it is irritating to see the same posts in different forums.
I agree. Here's the link:
