Which is better in terms of performance?
You haven't given us enough information to give you performance
If you anticipate a lot of client-side calculations that can't be done
WebStart for this purpose.
On the other hand, if you can keep all the heavy work done on the
server side, and you want a web-based application, use Servlets (Not
just JSP, look into frameworks, such as Spring, with Spring Web Flow,
or Struts, etc...)
Also, if you have to ask "Which technology should I use?", you are NOT
ready to ask "What do I need to use for performance?", If you have a
clear understanding of your business requirements, then the underlying
technology should be almost obvious.
