Do you agree that this looks similar to downloading all jars (signed) 
with webstart, and not using a codebase service at all?

For test/development client and server both use the same classpath. On 
deployment i use separate client and server jars, client jars only 
containing the classes it needs. The only problem is determining the set 
of classes needed in the client.

It all runs under the security of the webstart security manager, i guess 
thats something one might not like.
