Hi dudes and dudettes,

We are making a commercial application that must be used by some users via the web and by other users on a desktop pc without web access. What is or is there a Java-based technology today that will allow us to develop the GUI with the same codebase (and not develop the GUI twice)?

I know that there weren't any such technologies two years ago that was mature enough for a commercial product when we did earlier versions, but maybe there is one now.

I know about J2EE, Swing, JNLP, xml, xul, SwingML, SwixML, Macromedia, and others, but I don't really know the current state of the art in 2005.


May your horse always shit downwind,
