Ok, I need to accomplish the following:

I basically have this web page with a series of fields on it. The fields contain everything from the person's name, to his payment information.

When the user clicks the submit button, it activates Javascript.

The Javascript I have stored in a seperate JS file. Basically, all that it does is validate several fields JUST to make sure that they aren't blank.

From THIS point, is where I'm confused. Up to that point, everything works fine. Anyway, from this point, I want to be able to take THREE of the values from three of the fields, and query a database on the host. The host will then return a TRUE or FALSE value. I will then use the true / false value, and if it's TRUE, I will confirm with a message box.

Now, what should I use? I thought maybe an Applet woudl work, but apparently I can't use an applet for this??? Do I need to use a Servelet?

I'm totally confused.

Someone please steer me in the right direction.

Either a JSP page or a servlet is probably the best choice. Let's move this question to that forum.
