I want to do an applet that connects a server , (send and get strings).
I can do applet but I dont know how must an applet connnect to a server,
Must I use socket connection or there is another way to connect a server by an applet?
I mean when you browse to a web page and click a button and it opens an applet and you write a string in a text area and click a button to send your string to a server, what happens ? has this applet used socket connection?

Well, it is socket communication, but most likely over HTTP, which is easier than raw sockets. The Applet FAQ has some hints and links to examples on how to connect to a web server.
