I have one java application its downloading from the webserver, its downloading the three jars form the webserver and executing the JAR in hte desktop using the javaws, its working fine without any issue.

I have to downlaod the JARS from the webserver manually and the JARS to be executing in the another JAVA Frame work?

I tried by geturl its invoking the JAR throught Javaws.

The java application is the java abbaed pane appliaction should invoke the JAr from the webserver , Application should be invoked in hte java tabbed pane.

Please suggest me how can i handle this case in java.

Java WebStart builds up a classpath when you have multiple JARs. If you donwload the JARs and attempt to run them directly, you need to place them in the classpath of the java run command. Just like you would with any other app that has more than one JAR.
