WebRun is a single Java class file that implements a remote class loader and application launcher that can be used to distribute Java applications to clients. This drastically reduces the need to continually update each client as only this class file plus the Java environment is needed on the client. WebRun load JAR and CLASS files from URLs plus it supports basic authentication with HTTP URLs.

Release Notes: Very minor changes and some source code cleanups.
Release Notes: A change from an Apache-like license to the GNU GPL version 2, and some documentation cleanups.
Release Notes: Support for reading the WebRun command line options from a file loaded from a URL, options are now loaded from an HTML META tag so they can be added to standard Web pages (making setup easier), cleaned-up authentication code, and the ability remember multiple authentication tokens for cases in which different class directories/urls have different authentication needs.
Release Notes: Added AWT-based display of exceptions that are thrown from the application that is loaded or from WebRun itself, the error display automatically times out for un-attended operation, technical users can use the "details" button to show the raw details of the exception that was thrown and fixed a bug with one of the options (the case statement was falling through when it should not have).
Release Notes: Added AWT-based display of exceptions that are thrown from the application that is loaded or from WebRun itself. This includes a simple "geek-text" prophylactic that prevents the cassual user from being exposed to the overtly technical nature of an exception stack trace. The error display also automatically times out for un-attended operation. Technical users can use the "details" button to show the raw details of the exception that was thrown.
