This section describes how to export and deploy a Client Services RCP application through the Java
™ Web Start mechanism.
Web Start mechanism supports the deployment of Java
applications from a Web server, onto a client. The Client Services Web Start tools support the packaging of RCP applications for subsequent deployment through the Web Start mechanism. These applications run against an installed IBM
® Expeditor runtime on the client. Each application is launched as a self-contained RCP application running in its own VM. The application is not installed into the IBM Lotus
Expeditor platform. Instead, it can reference required features from the IBM Lotus
Expeditor platform that it needs. When the application ends, it may be cached on the client for future invocations, or may be removed if the cache is full. In this respect, the application is transient, like Java
applications that are run through Web Start.
Further information on Java
Web Start can be found in the documentation provided with Java
