No, it is not possible to write to a client side file from a Java Servlet. In order to do this, you would need to deploy a signed Applet. The Applet could communicate with the servlet, but it is the Applet that would take care of the writing to the local file. Hope this helps, and if you need further explanation don't hesitate to contact me.

thanks Henley.
Is there a web site which describes how to digitally sign an applet?
