There are so many good deployment tools out there nowadays that I no longer seen this as a real problem

Web apps have their own deployment pain.

Totally agree. I've seen people write background applications as webapps...there just seems to be some sort of weird myopia when it comes to this in IT right now.

... and the answer is ... build a web app. but use GWT for the client side - which means you get to develop (code & debug) both client & server in a single language (Java) which helps with both development & maintenance.
