It's a way.  Jesktop is controvercial.  Very in fact.  With Rana's 
FtpServer we have an admin console that works in two ways : 1) 
standalone executable jar 2) Jesktop dependant app.  Both are the same 
jar, and use RMI to interoperate with the server.  Jesktop supports hot 
app installation and de-instalation, but is not ideal for a Phoenix 
instance you intend to run for days un-interrupted.  For me its more 
about a PDA OS.
