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.
