All,
I have a question for you. I have to write a servlet using web server to go to backend database(sybase) and retrieve the details of a table enter by user.
My requirements are
1. java web start
2. jdbc
3. connection to database
4. to run servlet
Today morning I have downloaded java webstart from java site and placed on shared drive because of disk space on my local drive(using nt). When I was trying to execute some sample demos from java site, its poping a dialogue box saying that java webstart version 1.0.1 and not doing anything?
My question is
1. Is it happening becuase I stored java web start on shared drive and not on my local drive? Is there any particular drive and directory I have to store java web start?
2. How do I run small html file using java web start and the command?
3. Any sites with demos etc.
4. To connect to sybase any particular details?
I really appreciate your help.

I don't know if I understand your question, I think you don't really understand what Java Web Start does. Basically it is a tool for deploying java applications on clients. Once you have WS installed you can click an html-link in a browser and the application will be installed.
But somebody has to write this application, I think there are 4 examples on the Javasoft homepage.
Say you could use webstart to deploy your finished application to several clients.
