Hello:
Is there a way to have a swing APPLICATION appear in a browser like IE, Netscape? If possible, how is it done?
(I did get swing applets to appear in browser by installing the Java Plug-In's from Sun website)
Thanks in advance for your help.

A browser does not allow to run standalone applications in it and that is the reason why applets are used.So its hard to believe that one can run application in browser.

Raja,

Reading about Java Web Start may help you. You can't have an application running in the browser, but you can have an application launched by the browser.
