 Not quite. The JNLP/java did most of the work itself, but if you use
advanced server support with elaborate versioning descriptors you have
to declare and handle the logical (URL) to physical (file system)
mapping, declare new mime types for jardiff functionality, handle
Locale related issues, ...
 If using Java Web Start would not require any Java on the back end
whatsoever, then Marinilli on this JNLP wouldn't have dedicated a
chapter to it ;-)

 No exactly. I do have two things in mind. I have developed a full
blown application based on Swing (its features are a bit too
complicated for a mobile device) and there are some light
functionalities with a nails and thumbs kind of GUI for client mobile
 I have noticed (and confirmed by your reactions) that this is
something that most people are not interested in
