Hi folks!

I have a problem and I don't know how to solve it!

I'm in a applet and I have to invoke an action in a servlet.
But, to execute this action, I need some info from the client.

I could transfer it by the URL calling the showDocument() of AppletContext. But appears that it doesn't accept more than 255 characters on the URL. If it has more, notthing happens when I call it.

So I thought use RMI connection or socket... but I'm not sure!

It has another better solution?
Thanks!

The applet looks something like this -



while your servlet would look something like this -



Simple, huh?
