Let's take this in two parts.

First, why is Java appropriate for web-based applications. There are Java plugins for most major web browsers, and Sun's Java comes with those plugins built into the install package. In this respect, it is easy to get your application online.

Second, why is Java appropriate for client-server applications. Java has an extremely good networking package. The built in support for TCP and UDP communication makes a client-server application a work of minutes, rather than hours.
