    Default Updatable Java Desktop Application

    I created a Java Desktop Application and distributed it. Naturally, the program has several bugs and these are appeared after people started using it. Than it comes to my mind i should add an update feature to application. I started to research but also what do you advise to me about that ? Where should i start from ?

    I am not sure what you are asking...are you looking for advice on how to distribute your update to your distributed application?

    For the third time: Lesson: Java Web Start (The Java™ Tutorials > Deployment)

    From that: "Updates to a Java Web Start application are automatically downloaded when the application is run standalone from the user's desktop"

    Why you didn't understand me ? Is the reason my English or expressing oneself ?

    My question: I have an desktop application (version 1.0). When i create an updated version let's say 1.0.1, i want to inform my users that there is an updated version of the program. After that they will install the new version by manually or the application will do it for them.

    Second question: I knew that Java Web Start is suitable for that. But i am not using java web start. I distributed my app. from mywebsite with a setup.exe. So the quesiton is there a way to make update thing without using java web start ?
