You could use getAppletContext().showDocument() if the servlet's output is s Web page you want to display. Otherwise, just use the java.net.URLConnection class.

I am working on a problem similar to this. When I use getAppletContext().showDocument() to invoke my servlet to produce output to be displaying in a web browser, everything works great.

The problem is that the servlet does not receive the session info from the applet. In fact, request.getSession(false) returns null.

Any suggestions? Is there an Apache setting that I need to configure?

Thanks,
Sean
