Some of you are familiar with limits of applets. Web start (JNLP) allows for a more of a rich user interface then what we can do w/ Applets and DHTML. But deploying Java, applets and applications over the internet can be a challenge, including security warnings for registered applications and installation of current version of java by non-computer savvy users of our applications (can your father in law install and launch a WebStart application?)
The lead of Sun�s Java deployment team and usability experts (Mike Albers -J2SE UI expert will be there hopefully) will answer your questions at 11 AM California time and guide you. Here are the details of how to participate for FREE:

Sun�s stance is that it�s RFE and will not address it with wide deployment of Java 6 (aka Mustang) in 2007, and not on JRE 1.4.x updates, and will not do word smiting to clarify the application is registered.
Another issue is deploying/update Java by corporate end users at organizations that have a LAN admin.
