I'm planning to create an application using swing. lets say the swing app is installed in the server machine with all the JVM etc. do I need to install jvm in clients' machine? in web app, the client doesn't need to install anything other than web browser. is this the case with swing app? thanks

It's true that to run the Swing app on a client's machine, you need to get both the app and a suitable JVM onto that machine. But no, you technically don't need to "install" anything there -- you can use Java Web Start to ensure that the app and its JVM get onto the client's machine.
