My task is to get an applet to send and recieve data from a server on a specific port. What is the best approch on recieving and sending data?

1. Open a socket to server send or recive data and close the socket?
2. Open a socket to server. Let the connection be open until the applet closes/ terminates?

What is the best approach?

I will send data almost every second from and to the applet. Is Object reader and writer the stream to use or how do I get all the data from and to the applet.

Images, text, x and y positions.
