I haven't do any big project but I have some idea.
If your project is not required to use browser to run the client program, you should take a look and try "Java Web Start". You can find the infomation in java.sun.com.
If you want to use an Applet as a client program and avoid to use Socket to communicate with server, You can use Applet-Servlet Communication. Using a Servlet as a server side agent to communicate with other server/resources.
Take a look with this URL
