However I have no idea what
calling a local jar file from the applet and relaying the data to the local jar file
means. A jar file is just a container for classes and other resources, so you can't "call" it and "relaying data" to it also doesn't make sense. At any rate, whatever you meant by that, it sounds a lot more cumbersome than just writing to a file.
I'll dig into the signed applets topic and take that approach. Thanks Paul.
