Hi I will be creating an application using JDBC and possibly servlets and was wondering if it is really plausable to use applets as the front end?
I have looked into the other options(JavaScript, HTMl) but an applet seems to be the best was to get the dynamic view am I right?
If I were to use an applet obviously there would be problems with the speed for downloading but is it possible to put a preloader on so that at least the user can see how much is loaded? For example would it be possible to have a flash preloaded showing whilst the applet loads?
