Hi please help me in knowing how to deploy the java application on client side?
Here I have an application in swing, now I want to deploy it on client side. Client doesn't have any java related environment. Now I have to install JRE,JVM and other supported files to run my program on client side.
Please give me some info on this.
Thanking you in advance

not sure if I understand right...
(what do you mean by client-side?)
if your application is stand-alone then you
install Java Runtime(JRE) on the machine that
has to run the application and that should
be all. Please not that you should choose an
appropriate JRE 1.2 or 1.3 based on what was
used in developing the application.
Please refer to the Sun site to get details
about what you need to Run an application,

I also had one question related? I made my package which contains both client side and server side code. Client side code besides using net also uses some interface of package. Can I simply compile the client side code and place it in client m/c in arbitrary directory and give classpath of package in client m/c to do search for interface. Will it work? Client side m/c has JRE.

u can use a freeware installer from zerog InstallAnywhere Now! which can be used to deploy your application and the jvm etc and even provide shortcuts to the client machine. It will also provide an executable wrapper for your application that is termed as a launcher.
I agree. Here's the link:
