I am trying to set up an app involving both a database using JDBC and mySQL, and communication through the client's MIDI ports. I basically want to be able to store MIDI sysex data in the database, display it for the user, and allow them to edit it and send it to their synthesizer. So my client is not really "thin", and I think I will have to use an applet for the MIDI part (presuming that will work--is that outside applet rules??). Problem is, this needs to run on mac, which doesn't have a v2 jvm yet, and I'd like tables to display the data. And I guess applets can't communicate directly with the DB, right?? It looks like the jdk 1.3 midi implementation doesn't include any sysex control--it just plays back standard midi files, right? I've downloaded the independent implementation "JMidi" for mac and PC, and I need to verify that it can work in an applet.... If not, then what?? Seems like this should be possible. Any ideas, architecture-wise?? Thanks!
