    J2EE Application Client Container

    843844
      Hi everyone,

      I've three questions about J2EE Application Client Container.

      1) What do I have to install into the client computer so that my J2EE client application can run?

      2) Can I install my client application and also the client container through Java Web Start?

      3) Can I develop a (remote) client application that needs only J2SE but uses the Enterprise Java Beans?

      Thanks for the help

          Hi everyone,

          I've three questions about J2EE Application Client
          Container.

          1) What do I have to install into the client computer
          so that my J2EE client application can run?
          This is vendor specific. So you have to read your application server docmentation.
          If you are using Sun Java System Application Server (which is now open sourced at glassfish.dev.java.net), then here is a useful document for you:

          2) Can I install my client application and also the
          client container through Java Web Start?
          This is not yet required by Java EE platform, not in J2EE 1.4 and is not going to be rquired in Java EE 5 as well. So you have to ask your appserver vendor to see if they support Java Web Start for appclient container. Sun Java System Application Server 9.0 which is being developed in open source project glassfish (http://glassfish.dev.java.net) supports Java Web Start. You can check out.
          3) Can I develop a (remote) client application that
          needs only J2SE but uses the Enterprise Java Beans?
          No, you typically need additional libraries. Typically vendors provides a tool that makes a nice package that you can take to a remote host and run the appclient container there. e.g. if you are using Sun Java System Application Server, here is what you need to do:
