running application rumotely

Hi,
this application: http://people.clarkson.edu/~havenssm/gui6.doc
is a MySql database application running on a linux machine. I would like the user at a remote location to upload it by clicking a link and use it. I have Apache Tomcat on this linux box that i can use to set up  page with a link that the user click to upload the application.
e.g: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/table.html#validtext
Just like the demo are remotely run here.

Any suggestions to start with?

Just use an <a href> tag as normal to download (I presume you mean download, server to client, not upload, client to server) the application. It's up to you to make it suitable for Java Web Start though.

If you were interested in uploading then I suggest FileUpload from jakarta commons : http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/fileupload/

If you provide an HREF to it, make sure you have the installable (to which you would give the link) within the context-root of your web-application and you give an HREF relative to it.

In your server, place the application's installable at some directory within your web-application's root directory.
