Hi, I have some doubts with applets.

I have a Servlet, and in one of the pages I need an applet to do some tasks in the client machine (say: choose an image and resize it, before a future upload).

If a make the applet a .jar can I pass Strings parameters to it (say, Strings in the page)?
or if I don't make a .jar can the client use it?

don't know if I was clear, sorry

You don't need to create a jar file; it's possible to keep a hierarchy of loose class files instead. I find it almost always advantageous to create a jar file, though (it's easier to deploy, for one thing).

You can pass string parameters to the applet using <PARAM> tags inside of the APPLET tag. Those should be easy to generate if the page is created by a JSP or a servlet. See here for more detail.
