since it's java, you're getting into Michael's infinite paranoia soapbox... :)

also it requires FTP credentials, or an FTP account, which makes life
a living hell. firewalls, NATted setups, people finding out it's an
open FTP, etc.

If you are requiring an applet, I don't see why there is even a
discussion. Go with Gears, no extra server code or configuration

If you are anti-applet, you'll still need javascript, and depending on
the file sizes you're dealing with, you'll need to modify the server
configuration (which is out of a lot of people's control)
