I have always read that one of the advantages of Application Virtualization is
Flexible applications that follow users online and offline .

I am unable to understand how does the user(clients) get offline access to the packages.There has to be server connection atleast for the first time to publish the packages and then the client can get the application from the cache.

How does offline package access happen???

Pls somebody can help me with this.....[&o]

The original provisioning of an application does require enough connectivity for the bits to be delivered. Some people make this process part of the operating system deployment, others deploy the application at a later stage.

Once the application is delivered - it depends on an cache-file that hosts the bits of the application which allows the user to use the application in an offline scenario.

Unlike Citrix Xenapp / Xendesktop - Application Virtualization is about running applications locally, however abstracted from the operating system layer. Xenapp / Xendesktop allows users to see applications that are executed centrally - and therefore always requiring connectivity.
