Hallo, I've been discussing this with several fellow students but none of us are sure. The question is, if you surf to a webapp(jsp:s, servlets working against a db), does the container start the webapp when the server acknowledges the request via the URL? And when does a server "close down" an application for a client? When the client closes the browser? When the he surfs to an entirely different URL? Or when??? It would help a lot to get an answer to this question(if there is a general one)!!!

I'm not sure but I think closing a browser will just shutdown the javawebstart applet. And when you use javawebstart application, this application will not shutdown when you close the browser, because a Javawebstart application is started using a jnlp file (a sort of startup file), and just loaded like any other java-application. I hope this suits you.
