I have a project where we are developing a webportal on Struts framework & J2EE, my area of concern is when the user logins through a JSP index page the browser should open a graphical user interface which we have to import from a swings based desktop application. What we need to do is we have to import or display a fully functional swings based user interface abstracted from that desktop application which is also developed on struts. Can anybody guide a little how to pull swings into a web-browser? Which technologies we should be looking for like using servlets to pull swings in an applet or can it be done through jsp and taglibraries? Plz help in urgent. Heartiest thanks in advance
You'll either have to turn the app into an Applet, or into a JavaWebStart application. Note that it will be only loosely coupled to the Struts app, as it will be running on the client machine, while the Struts app is running on the server.
Thanks for responding, I feel i wasnt able to explain my problem precisely. What we need to do is at our end we have both the applications, that is the struts framework and the desktop application in swings, now what we need to do is to use a specific part of the desktop application and plug it into our webportal through struts. Both applications will run from the server only. Could u guide me further asap
