Hi all,
I have a Swing application now, I have to convert this existing Swing application into a Web application that runs inside a browser. Is it possible to do it?. If so, can anybody give a solution.


Thanks,<br />Vijay Anand

It would (probably) be straightforward to convert your Swing app to a JApplet. JApplets run inside browsers, but may or may not be be considered "web applications".

If you want to end up with something using Servlets, JSP, PHP, ASP, or similar technologies then it's not so straightforward. I suppose it's possible there may be some tools for one or more of those, but I don't know so I'll leave it to others to comment.

You might want to take a look at this. I've never really used it and I am sure it is not a straight 1:1 mapping but may be the closest thing you've got to a conversion.
