I wouldn't say it's not a good idea, it just seems to be a lot of work, 
since you need to configure a TC server on every user's machine.  Why 
not just set it up on an in-house server that cannot be accessed from 
the outside world, but can be accessed from the in-house LAN?

If you choose to make it a java desktop app, you'll probably find that a 
lot of your code can be used unchanged, especially if the UI code is 
fairly well separated from the back-end processes code.
