hi guys this is my very first posts so sorry if i am overstepin some rules
Well i am trying to make a medical managment sys which has to an online
web based project.
i am trying to make it wid appltes since swing is not supported on a broswer, I have to use awt. Now i have to submit this project on 15 of this mnth and after a lot of searchin i now know tht awt cannot use the normal jdbc-odbc drivers to conn to an applet as java it self dosent allow it.I have come across some possiblities
1. Easysoft drivers, which i dun know how to configure
2. Digital signin d applet, which will cost 20$ (aprox 1000 Rs(indian))
3. using Servlets, which i have no idea about.
4. Jumping of a 12 storied building.

so guys if any one has any help to offer please post your replies.

p.s--if ne one has a ready project it will be most helpful;-)

Applets can be written in either AWT or Swing, both of which are supported by the Java Plugin that is used in browsers. The only possibility that Swing might not be supported was if the age-old, obsolete Microsoft JVM was used, and I would strongly advise against that.

Digital signin d applet, which will cost 20$ (aprox 1000 Rs(indian))


You can sign the applet with a certificate that you created yourself for precisely USD 0.0. That is perfectly acceptable for a student project (not, of course, for a production system, but USD 20 wouldn't be a hurdle for that). See HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem for details.
