I am looking in to Swing applications exists that can update themselves upon logging in. I suspect they roughly work the following way: An "updater" contacts the server and gets updating instructions. It then deletes old classes, gets new classes and configuration files via e.g. RMI, installs the new files and reboots the application. And that's it. The question is: Is this rougly the way these applications work? Are there any frameworks that could assist me in such a task? Are there any pitfalls that I should be aware of? Thanks, Steffen

Is there a reason that Java Web Start would not be appropriate for this?

Java Web Start? Well, there's something obvious that I missed... And I stupid have been wondering all along what Java Web Start actually was. Embarrasing, but I'll have to look into it. Thanks!
