Where is the application supposed to start? On the same computer as the browser? on a server somewhere?

Sounds like a job for Java Web Start (aka JNLP).

Have a page which will let you upload the file to the server
Process the file
Have a servlet/jsp return the JNLP link to the user.

Which part of my reply did you not understand.

I just outlined a way in which you can pass a jmx file to the server and based on that file get a jnlp link. Is this not what you want to do?
