Hi,
People have been telling me that getting data from a database using applet was possible but only if both of them reside on the same computer but it is not true, Database does not shows through Applet. While a standalone with a similar code does work ...comment plz.

If you're accessing the database using JDBC, the applet sandbox won't allow access even when the database is on the same server you loaded the applet from.
You can create a signed applet to enable the JDBC, but firewalls often block JDBC, so the preferred method is to do the JDBC on the server side and use HTTP tunneling to get the data out to the client.
Try doing a search in this forum. It's a common question.

I am running an unsigned jar file on an apache webserver with MySQL as the backend DB which is on the same server as Apache and I have no problems accessing the database through the applet on any PC.

Hi Gregg,

Looks like you are using AppletViewer to run your applet. Try to run the same from the browser, I don't think you would be able to connect to the database. Coming to the idea of signing an applet to connect to the database, how easy is that task? Do you need to sign up with a certification authority?? what is required on the database end(residing on some other machine), are any policy files required on the server end???
I have a situation where, I want to embed my applet in my webpage which is on the intranet, and I would like to give the applet previleges to access the db. Can we give access previleges to the applet from the browser to access the db?? I don't want to use a signed applet since my applet is run inside the intranet... ! Any suggestions or help appreciated.
Thanks
Jack.

Why not use Http tunneling?
