Hi
All this game programming,
but I should be certain, will Web start and jnlp files be able to launch my Java JFrame, network game exactly like it is on my desktop, Eclipse development, but on other people's computers? None of the Webstart examples I've seen create JFrames or do complex TCP, UDP networking.
Thanks

I've already answered that HERE. In fact a JFrame is usually created as Web Start is primarily  a way of launching Java applications (as opposed to applets)

Good!

Really, is this the new norm? I always felt Applets were lacking.

Sorry about the repeat.

I will close this one soon.

Well i don't know about 'norm' ;) Client-side Java is probably struggling in many ways as opposed to server-side

Thanks.

That's slightly alerting. Do you think support, usage for Java clients will start to thin out? Python winning the war?
So, I must just stop worrying about this Web Start launch being different?
Well, I'd still like to see in my other question if I can do networking tests from a URL click.

Well client-side Java has never been very big but it's probably not getting any smaller. It's just getting messier as security problems (particularly on Windows) have caused security to get tight enough to make life difficult for the deployer. But it has to be said Web Start is a power mechanism
