GMSC & Java Web Start support



Am a bit curious here... are there any possibilities that the GMSC will be a full browser-based application in the near future? (5 -10 yrs maybe)

Am asking this because i understand that most browsers are removing support for java plugins and that java web start might be or has been the only bloodline for java-based web client applications. I've also read around a little and it is apparent that java web start technology is still not very secure for web-based applications.


Notably i have seen that some components of the GMSC have been converted from jnlp to browser e.g the workflow editor. So in this sense does it mean that GMSC might be a full-fledged web application in the near future?

Re: GMSC & Java Web Start support

Hello Elvon.


Yes there are plans to move away from Java to be a pure web application in the future but this will take considerable effort and time.
