For my Assignment, I am thinking, I should use Applets for web-client and java application for travel-agent. No no no no! I should use JSP for both web-client and travel-agent and keap it nice and simple,no?
Yes it is nice and simple if you use jsp for both clients. I know one who got above 90 but because it was mentioned there in document it is better keep two. there are some advantages and disadvantages keeping two types of clients. it is upto you how you design
I think there's no problem having different clients. Using the MVC pattern you can design an application that will be visible even to mobile devices. I have choosed to use JSP + Servlets for Customers, and Swing GUI for Travel Agents. Remember: the view and controller may change, but the business remains the same for both clients.

I think Applet web client for Customers will not be a good idea. As the customer's browser may not have JRE installed...port filtering ( if RMI is used for applet to Server communication) ...To avoid port filtering http tunneling ...blabh blabh etc complexity may arise.
