WebRun provides a simple Java application distribution tool.
WebRun is a single Java class file that implements a remote class loader and application launcher that can be used to distribute Java applications to clients.
This drastically reduces the need to continually update each client as only this class file plus the Java environment is needed on the client.
WebRun load JAR and CLASS files from URLs plus it supports basic authentication with HTTP URLs.
A simple Java Application Starter that can load jars and class files from URLs, including password protected URLs. WebRun offers the benefits of Java without the overhead or bugs of web browsers.
The front end is run as the main Java class using any Java 1.1 or later runtime environment (RT, JRE, or JDK). It may be compiled as part of a package or outside of packages. It does not depend on its package name in any way other than it is the location where we place our Java tools.
The code was specifically written in such a way as to only require a single class file (in addition to Java) to be on the user's system. Thus some of the strange constructs to do the AWT windows for the password entry and for the status display.
