It's a way to deploy a Java app from a web site. Assuming the user has
Java installed, the app can be launched just by clicking a link on a web
page. The jar files are cached locally so they are only downloaded once,
the user can make desktop and Start menu shortcuts for the app, and you
can update users automatically by deploying new jars to the web server.
It's pretty nice and largely trouble-free.
