    Default Java Deployment

    Hi there,

    I am new to Java. I need to write a program that will access the user's microphone and has a simple (i.e. one window) GUI interface. The program must preferably be deployed without the user knowledge similar to Flash, or through a simple click. I also need the program to remain in the memory after the web site page from which it was downloaded, is gone. I also need this to be as cross-platform as possible.

    I looked at Flash but flash requires the script/program to be on each page, which is not feasible.
    I looked at add-ons but they require the user to install it, plus you need one for each browser.

    I looked at Java web start and it seems very interesting but it seems to me that it requires the web server to have support for a specific mime-type. Is this true for Java web start?

    Is there another way to do that?

    Thank you very much.

    Best Regards,
    Ovi

    You can't write spyware in Java.

    The user needs convenience, which means we need to avoid things like downloading libraries, clicking, installing, rebooting, configuring programs. The ideal case is to have the user do nothing.

    Not so sure why you thought this is spyware. How do you program?
