Hello guys
I am designing an Intranet system which has a web extension. Some users are on LAN and they access intranet thru swing based applet wheres some users are on web who use JSP generated pages for the user interface
I am supposed to develop this application. Can anyone suggest way in which this can be acheived minimizing code duplicacy and redundancy
Cheers
Jayram

The J2EE way would be to stuff as much of your application as possible in Enterprise JavaBeans. The servlets/JSPs and the Swing application would ideally be no more than thin front-ends.
How well this would work in practice depends on what you try to build, of course. Have a look in the EJB forum.

We are using the MVC (MOdel view Controller) method of designing our apps because the learning curve for EJBs was to great...
You can write some decently smart apps with the MVC if you dont have time to learn EJBs.
servlets beans and jsps
model = Standard java beans(businesslogic)
view = jsps(presentation)
controller = Servlets(flow control)
applets
controller and view = applet
model = Standard java beans
EJBs do seem very worth while but I just don't have a complete understanding ... yet.
