Some websites require JVM installed on the client machine in order to provide some information in the windows on the webpage rendered by thie website. AN example of such website is "www.capitalmarket.com"
Why is it required to run JVM to run on client machine ? Evcerything mthat website renders is a webpage and webpage contains HTML code which is provided by servlet. So JVM is needed on server side. Why do we need that on client side ? Is that anything to do with web services ? I dont understand this web services part is thats the reason. Why do we need JVM on client m/c to run a web service ?
