J2SE client or J2EE client ?

I have a Weblogic Server book which divides client applications into J2SE clients, J2EE clients and applet clients.
I know that deploying an application client with the .ear application means creating a J2EE application client which runs in a J2EE client container. Thats why I have to use the launchclient tool, right ?
But is it also possible to create a J2SE client with websphere ? I know that I loose portability then, but this leads to my next question. Let's say i have written an application with a J2EE application client (let's assume a swing client) what are the next steps in order to deploy the client on let's say 100 client workstations ?
Do I have to install a client container and the whole .ear file for each client container (makes up 100 workstations) as well ? And how would you organize this deployment (maybe webstart is a tool that can help ?)
Many thanx for any replies,

Read the section in the InfoCenter on "thin clients".

sorry to ask you that question, but it says:
Install the Java application thin client from the WebSphere Application Client CD by selecting option J2EE/Thin application client for the WebSphere Application Client.
I have downloaded the eval version and thus have no client cd. where can i get the thin client from ?
Then YOU must do the pig's work! Read this tiny ad. READ IT!
