Java Web Start

Java Web Start is a framework which allows application software for the Java Platform to be started directly from the Internet using a web browser.

Comparison with Java Applet

  • Web Start applications do not run inside the browser while applets do.
  • The sandbox in which Web Start run does not have to be as restricted, although this can be configured.
  • Web Start overcome many compatibility problems with browsers’ Java plugins and different JVM versions in comparison with Applets.
  • Web Start programs cannot communicate with the browser as easily as applets. To assist migration, a Java Applet can also be used as a Java Web Start application.
