are interested in writing a Swing client application in Jython, but are
concerned about how this would be packaged for install on clients.
Our users are not power users, so it'd have to be very easy and
self-contained, InstallShield-ish kind of install. The point of the
application is to be available as a backup when the Internet is down, so doing
it as an applet is not an option.
Similarly, once installed, it'd have to be a
click-the-icon-and-run kind of situation -- the users cannot know or care
that this is not a typical Windows or Mac application.
Any suggestions? Maybe Jython is not the
right tool to write client apps, it's more for server-side?
