This article proposes an application process that creates a one step request to launch and authenticate a Java application through the web. It takes advantage of Java Network Launching Protocol (JNLP), Asynchronous JavaScript And XML (AJAX) and Webseal technologies. The application implements a client-side login process that authenticates a request to a fire-walled JNLP server. It launches a standalone java application using Webstart JNLP. The application also maintains both the client-server authentication and application datasource authentication.
