Sending HTML pages to client

I have created a java server application that opens a serverSocket and responds to requests from an applet running on a remote client. The client applet requests and then displays data from the server in an AWT frame.
When the applet sends a request I would like for the server to send an HTML document and have the client browser display it instead of the applet.
I need for this process to run independantly of any web server or servlet container.
I'm confused on how to achieve this. Could someone point me to a set of java classes that provide the functionality I would need to do send HTML pages?

I guess you could use the java-javascript comunication library for the purpose.
Since the requests sent by the applet will be served sent back to applet itself(I think!). Applet can use javascript methods for displaying the new html document.
Another workaround could be using the HTTP methods, like GET etc and sending the response to the browser itself.I donno how is the implementation.
thanks and regards

Try using servlets by giving html tags in the system.out.println line.The best part is u can even give JScript and VBScript in the tags.
