Beginner question regarding applets

I'm currently learning Java, so this is a bit of a newbie question I'm afraid.
Is the following possible without having a serverlet/jsp running on the host computer:
User downloads applet, draws image on applet.
User hits a send button, user's drawing is uploaded to Server Database.
User2 downloads applet with previous user's drawing contained.
User2 draws on applet, altering the earlier drawing and uploads.
And so on...

Is this possible? If so, could someone point me in the right direction to get started.

I have some experience with Python, PHP, MySQL if there's some hack I can employ there...

Thanks

There has to be something running on the server to put the drawings into the database; it doesn't have to be a servlet. It could be PHP code, or anything else you know how to do.
