hi ,
would like to know the best way to convert an existing Jsp/servlet with websphere/oracle system to Swing thin client. without disturbing the current web app.
so that the client can work the same way using the swing Gui.
Thanx in advance

Usually a Swing application is called a *thick* client, and JSP/Servlets are called a *thin* client.

The thing is, they are both clients, so you could have a Swing GUI client and a JSP/Servlet Web client for the same application. This is the classic view of the J2EE 'tiers'. Both a JSP/Servlet client and a Swing client would be in the presentation tier. Exactly how you're going to go about coding the Swing client depends on your app.

Does your application use EJBs for the encapsulation of data and business logic? If so, all you've really got to do is get a connection to the EJB container and start pulling data from your EJBs. If your EJBs are well designed then all you've really got to do is make GUIs able to display the data encapsulated in the EJBs, allow the user to edit this information, and hook up the 'OK' button to send the changed data back to the EJB.

That's a really high level overview, but a lot of what you are going to do depends on what your application does.
