Server-side database when using WebStart?

I have a question about RCP applications and using WebStart. Suppose I have an RCP app, with an associated database, in a multiuser environment (i.e., all users share the database). Some of the users would run the app via WeStart.

Can the database reside on the server side when using WebStart (so it's common and available to all users)? Or, does it always have to be on the client side?

Thanks

Eric

You can use the database for the user view while the database is still on the client side.

The only thing that is magic about Web Start is that it lets you load your application from somewhere else. After that, it's just a Java application running on your computer.

And yes, it is possible for Java applications to access databases which are running on a different computer, provided of course that the possible networking issues have been taken care of.
