Hi there.I am writing a java program that allows connection from one java client program. This client program is sitting on windows 2000 server.What is the best way to distribute this program so as it can be accessed over the internet?
I think JNLP can do it for me but I am not sure. Is there other/easier solutions?

Rewrite the client as an applet, or write an applet that scripts the client in some way, or communicates with the client.
Maybe rawt can be used?

Hi
I rather not use applets for security reasons. The software is for an online voting program so security is a major issue.
Is writing applets the only approach?

Applets are neither more secure nor less secure than any web application you will write.
Did anyone tell you otherwise?
For a voting system, your security issues are not with the applets, but with authentication, authorization, administration and audit.
Can you verify the voter's identity with very low error margins?
Can the identified user vote at this time?
Can an administrator fix the voting results?
What auditing measures are in place?

technically speaking, there may be alternatives to applets, but I don't believe that they apply in your case.
