I am trying to design a master-slave system with the following attributes:

1. Linux Master box having all the Java code.
2. At least two Windows XP Professional Slave boxes (no Java code on any of these)

Front end screens on Master would contain a text fields for IP Address and Java program to be executed. On a click of button, the slaves (who's IP Address was entered in the Master screen text field) would get the request to execute the given Java program, a given number of times. Once executed, each slave would turn the results in to the master via a file. After all the slaves have turned in their results, Master would consolidate the results, work another program on the results and re-delegate tasks to the slaves. The steps would stop iterating only when an exit criteria specified by the program has been met.

If we were to restrict all code to only the master box, what could be the lucidly possible ways to achieve this design?

Please do not post the same question in multiple forums. It causes confusion and duplication of effort as the community tries to help everyone.
