Amit,
If two applets are in the same context they you can communicate using AppletContext. If they are two different applets then you have to have a kind of Manager/Server to communicate across. Infact this is how we did to keep all the applets in sync across client windows. Hope this helps.

Hi Sivaram,

By Manager/Server do you mean that we will have to contact the server by using socket programming?
What do you mean by keeping all the applets in sync across client windows?
I am confused. Please help!!!

Use the NAME tag in the HTML definition. You can give a name to your applet. Other applets in the HTML page can access your applet with this NAME.
thanks.
 
Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
