is it possible to dial a phone # from an applet.
i have a created a web-based Tele-Marketing System and they want to automate the calling of tel #'s.
is that possible with an applet? or there is another technology that i must use.
thanks a lot.

Ugh, I have to fight my avulsion to your application of technology because if I help you I might get a sales call from your system some day.
But you might try looking at the Java Communications API. It can provide you with low-level access to your com ports, which you can then use to talk to a modem or other serial hardware, and have it dial a phone for you.

I've never used that library, but I am aware of what it can do and based on your stated goal, it looks like something that might work.
