    Hi all,
    I have a Client Server application.
    I wondering if it is possible to run the GUI Client directly from the Server.
    This means that the Client is installed on the Server and has his one Path there.
    Installation on the Client PC is not possible.
    JRE also has to be used from the Server.
    What I like to do is, that via a Web link I run the Client.

    Have somebody any idea to do this or some code samples.

    Many thanks for helping me out with this.

    It is not really possible. If you want to run the UI app on the server then you need to use a remove desktop / vnc solution.

    You should instead create a web app and access it from the browser.

    Hi Erel,

    I have manage to create a Batch file to start the application from Client side without JRE on Client PC.
    If I use Jshell or fx.ShowExternalDocument with a B4j Web Server is this executed on Serversite or Clientsite??
    I hope there is any sample about this.

    Thanks for help.

    See my previous answer. It will not work.

    jShell or fx.ShowExternalDocument will start the process on the server. They have nothing to do with the client.
