Desktop Apps, A Zero Deployment Strategy

"Desktop Apps, a Zero Deployment Strategy" is the third of a three-part series of Tech Spotlight articles highlighting the capabilities of BASIS desktop applications. Desktop Apps, introduced in BBj® 19.20, is the BASIS replacement for Java Web Start (JWS). Oracle deprecated JWS in Java 9, and starting with Java 11, they removed JWS entirely from their distributions. When designing Desktop Apps, we removed the limitations of having complicated JNLP files, the requirement of a security certificate, and the JAR signing. We also added the ability for updates to Java, BBj, or programs to be automatically handled by the client, and for all configured applications to be available from the BBj Jetty home page via a URL.
