Embedding JWS and Applets with JOGL

I have managed to get JOGL working in a browser through using Java Web Start and a JNLP file.

My question is as follows: Is there anyway to embed a JWS program into a web page, similar to how an applet is embedded.

If not, and an applet is the only way forward, how would you go about deploying a JOGL application as an applet, and how would you provide the necessary security permissions (to read and write local files, which is relatively easy using just a JNLP file)

Hope this makes sense!

No, JWS apps do not run inside web pages, only applets do. The way to deploy applets using JOGL is via JNLPAppletLauncher, to which I've pointed you before.

Any necessary permissions would be given by signing the applet; see HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem for details.

Thanks again Lester, sorry for the repeated material from my last post.
