I have a browser based application( say A) and an exe application(say B) both of which are already up and running in the same system.Now on some event in A ,say a button click, I want to pass some data to B and fire some event in B. Can anybody tell me how to do it ? The exe application can support activeX/Applets.

If you have a signed applet and the user allows it to interact with the local system you could use RMI, sockets, named pipes. Pretty much any inter-process technique. Without the signiture+user approval an applet can only communicate with the server it came from, which limits you to sockets and some homegrown indirect communication via the webserver.
