Java Web Start - Why not?
It's not the first time that I bumped into a customer which has a simple question, why shouldn't I use Java Web Start?

Trying to get an answer

But why even think of JWS?
When you have an existing Swing application and you need a web support you have no choice but to:
1) Develop a web applicaion from scratch.
2) Use Java Web Start
3) Use AJAX Swing
My question is, what if I only have couple of users and they have no problem with Java, should I cosider JWS as my best solution?
