I have a alumni website at geocities and it includes a roster of alumni. Currently I have a search facility on the site using Javascript but I wish I could have a more advanced search (on skills,company,city,name etc) facility using an applet which could use a text file on server as a database since geocities does not provide databse support.
I think using mycgiserver is too complicated. Can anyone guide me how can I use a textfile/applet for this. Thanx!

If you put your data file in the same directory as your applet the applet should be able to open the file and use its content. ;-)
