Parameters from multiple web pages?

Hay gang,

I have been reading the marketing hype about Web Start. I love the ability to configure the exact environment your application is going to run within. For Applets this is currently not the case. You are, for the most part, at the whim of last jre downloaded.

My question is this, can a Web Start application take parameters from a web page, and then the next web page, and then the next page...?

Currently we have the same applet on several pages and its behavior parameterized by what is passed to it from that web page. The web UI is sufficient, so we don�t want to go full blown Swing app, but the Applets are a support nightmare.

My guess, based on what I�ve read, is that you will say no, but I thought I would ask,

Jeff

WeStart Application are complete Java Applications with the exception that they are downloaded and started from a web page. From there, they have nothing to do with web pages unless you code it into the application.
