Applets and Webstart

NeXtMidas macros can easily be deployed as Applets or WebStart applications. Applets run inside a browser, Webstart applications are the same as traditional applications, but Java Webstart technology is used to distribute the application to many clients. When using Webstart clients need only have Java and HTTP access to the server in order to run the application. The developer does not have to install software on all the client nodes, only the server. A single update to the server ensures ALL clients can get the update.
