What do you mean by "manage" a desktop application? A desktop app can call a WS, but being the target of a WS call would be highly unusual (although not impossible).

Did you check out JWS?

I'm not sure what JWS has to do with the actual question here but:

Can we update swing based application using web services?

If you mean can you retrieve data from web services and use that data in your Swing application then the answer is yes. If you mean something else, you'll need to provide more details.

By update I took it that there are going to be some code modifications/enhancements as the OP said update the application and not update the data.
In this case JWS will be one of the probable solutions.

Not really. And we really don't know what the OP wants because they haven't responded yet. Let's wait for that before continuing to read his mind.

Actually,
We are planning to develop a client service which would be running at,
client's end.Where the swing based application is running.
That swing based application has hashtable which needs to be updated through
the web services at run time.

Steps which are being performed:
1.There is database on one machine.
2.There is oneserver side web service running on server, which would be contineously pinging and retrieving the data from database.
3.And client web service would be continous ping this server web service
and update the swing based hashtables.
4. need clarification for pre requisites on running the client web service.


regards,
Sachindra

OK, so the client does not run (or host) a web service, it accesses a web service that's running elsewhere. There's a wide range of possibilities for implementing this. The simplest would be to open an URL connection to the server, which then sends back structured data (possibly XML or JSON); this would amount to a RESTful approach. Using the full-blown SOAP stack and its associated APIs (SAAJ, JAX-WS) is also possible, of course. So I'd say the client side does not present a problem.
 
Oh sure, it's a tiny ad, but under the right circumstances, it gets bigger.
