hi! friends
i'm working on a project and i have completed all the coding of the project now i have to distribute the project to the clients.
and the project will be distributed over the internet.
so how to transfer my project from my server to the client m/c.
so that it should be executed whenever required.

There is a product called InstallSheild that will bundle everything up into one download file that you can make available from a web-page, and the user downloads it and "executes" it, which causes it to be installed.

InstallAnywhere from ZeroG software (www.zerog.com) is another option that works well for Java programs, and I believe that it also supports the sort of web-based distribution that you're interested in. The last time I did a side-by-side comparison between the two, I found InstallAnywhere to be a much better choice for distributing Java applications, although I have to admit that it's been quite a while (at least in "Internet time") since I compared them with one another.

hi all
i faced the same problem but my project uses (JMF)
so i have to install it first on evrey user's machine
and all user's have to go thrue the installaition process
and made shortcut's for jmf
i realy don't want all that to be happen
i want the user setup my program by double click on the plahpalh.exe
to install my program and don't go through the instalation of jmf
thanks

Hi,
what you can do is, bundle your jmf libraries in your installer just as you bundle normal jar and lib files.
you do not need to install jmf additionally...
