Hello all...
Can someone tell me whether an applet can store a database file into clients computer & later
access the same & perform any manipulation of that database file & maybe transfer the data
from Clients computer to applets originating server.
Thanks.

Shah,
Not unless it is a signed Applet. For regular Applet, memory is all you can use. Applet can access the database but it cannot store it on client HD.

Hai,
An applet is a program which gets downloaded on to the clients machine and excute there. So if the program is targeted for a specific user then that particular client should have the proper dns entry .
Apart from this the Applet should be a trusted applet .So that it should be able to read and write to the disk.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
