JavaLobby: When Will Java Web Start be Production Quality?
Scalemania asks When Will Java Web Start be Production Quality? :
Java Web Start (JWS) has always had great potential. With this deployment platform I can reach users such as mom-and-pops who would otherwise have to call their son (me) when they need to download and install something from the internet. Mom-and-pops are not that interested in computers but they know how to write an email and click a link on a webpage. To start a JWS application all they have to do is click a link on a webpage. While the application is being launched it is also cached locally. It can be started offline and updates are detected and installed automatically...
