I don't know of a way to do this (but I haven't
looked into it very hard). The closest thing I know
of is that browsers can download classes for Applets.

For an application, you need at least some classes
locally in order to start the application. Given
that the client must download at least some classes,
it might as well download a JAR file with everything
it needs.

Good luck,
Bill
