Hi Guys !!! Workin on an application where the applet needs to invoke the destroy() method through which it passes values to the servlet.This works as desired when the applet is invoked using the applet tag However,when the embed tag is used "the destroy() is not invoked when the user closes the browser".Another thing i realised was that when another browser window was opened by either using file->new->window or Ctrl ^ N then,now........ if either of the browser windows were closed then...... it would now invoke the destroy() method. Sorry, i was'nt able to"properly display" the applet & embed tags so i have removed it ... Guys ... this part is very crucial to the entire appln & i'm very confused as to this happening.Pls give me ur suggestions. Thanks Guys !!!
