Subject Sun to host Online Live Q/A Conference on Java Application Deployment (WebStart) tmrw March 1st
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2005 04:55:17 GMT

Some of you are familiar with limits of applets. Web start (JNLP) allows 
for a more of a rich user interface then what we can do w/ Applets and 
DHTML. But deploying Java, applets and applications over the internet 
can be a challenge, including security warnings for registered 
applications and installation of current version of java by non-computer 
savvy users of our applications (can your father in law install and 
launch a WebStart application?)
The lead of Sun’s Java deployment team and usability experts (Mike 
Albers -J2SE UI expert will be there hopefully) will answer your 
questions at 11 AM California time and guide you. Here are the details 
of how to participate for FREE:

Above link should be enough.

Some people are *boycotting* the chat conference because of issues since 
about 2001(it appears that a individuals at Sun believe that they should

One important issue was picked up here (Scary screen for registered 
applications)

Sun’s stance is that it’s RFE and will not address it with wide 
deployment of Java 6 (aka Mustang) in 2007, and not on JRE 1.4.x 
updates, and will not do word smiting to clarify the application is 
registered.
Another issue is deploying/update Java by corporate end users at 
organizations that have a LAN admin.

Sample “applets” sites:

MacroMedia and MS Longhorn also have RiA kits, you can read this as 
intro to RiA:

RiA will be major part of SoA – Services.
Server side Java will be limited w/o Client Side Java.

You want to hear deployment answers from Sun people in charge? OK, tmrw.
