Java Web Start -- A technology for simplifying deployment of Java applications -- gives you the power to launch full-featured applications with a single click from your Web Browser. You can now download and launch applications, such as a complete spreadsheet program or an Internet Chat Client, without going through complicated installation procedures.

Java Web Start includes the security features of the JavaTM 2 platform, so the integrity of your data and files is never compromised. In addition, Java Web Start technology enables you to use the latest Java 2 technology -- with any browser.
With Java Web Start, you launch applications simply by clicking on a Web page link. If the application is not present on your computer, Java Web Start automatically downloads all necessary files. It then caches the files on your computer so the application is always ready to be relaunched anytime you want -- either from an icon on your desktop or from the browser link. And no matter which method you use to launch the application, the most current version of the application is always presented to you. Java Web Start is localized into French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, and Traditional Chinese.
Java Web Start is easy to use: you can efficiently access, download, and launch applications as easily as accessing a Web page. Beginning with version 1.2, Java Web Start is bundled with J2SE and is no longer a separate download.Because Java Web Start runs independently of any browser, you can shut down your browser or surf to another Web page and continue using your application. Applications deployed with Java Web Start do not require a browser interface to operate. To save time later, you can relaunch your desired application anytime from the desktop icon, without powering up your browser again.
End-users will discover the ease of Java Web Start for everyday tasks, while developers will appreciate its flexibility, power, and inherent security features when deploying new applications on the Web.
Flexibility, functionality, security, and standards -- Java Web Start gives you more to work with.
