I have developed a Java Web Start application and wish to run
advertiser videos within the application. If you are not familiar
with Web Start, it is the same as a regular java application except
that it is deployed via the web and launched on the client. I would
like to know if the application can invoke the flash player in much
the same way the browser does. If so, can anyone give me some code
This is a very basic question but I haven't been able to get
any information anywhere.
A few years ago when I was a Java programmer and was
developing apps for delivery with Java Web Start, I asked a similar
question. I didn't find a solution then, either. If you want to
display a SWF within a Java application, it would have to be done
through the Java media framework (I don't know its official name).
But that framework would have to be able to incorporate the Flash
Player somehow - either through as an ActiveX control or through a
plugin or with the standalone player.
My guess is that this is not possible, but keep searching the
'net - if it can be done, someone has done it.
