Is there any tool to convert Rich Client Swing application to Web based application?

Desktop apps work in so many different ways that it would be a huge undertaking to create a translator that even works in a fraction of all cases. I'm afraid you're out of luck.

It actually depends on what you mean by a "web based application" -

If you just want to be able to *launch* your swing based application from a website and have the code download automatically - look into Java Web Start.

If you're looking for a way to execute a Swing application as a series of web pages with HTML forms instead of Swing GUIs - then Ulf is correct - there is no tool to automatically do this.
