Hi! Java citizens,
How to enable the Java 2 Applets to communicate with VB Application?
This is a client-server application which involved VB, since the
existing application is written in VB.Any help is much appreciated...

Regards,
Peter.

You could try opening a socket between the applet and the VB app (assuming you can use sockets in VB.) You'll have to either sign the applet, or use a custom security policy, but you can certainly do this.
