Thanks! I did take the advice of those who have posted to the thread as well as the instructions from O'Reilly's book on Servlets and have had this running for a little while now.
This was a great exercise for me to learn "http tunneling" as well.
I too went to A&M, but sure didn't get a chance to do any of this type of work as an MIS major. They didn't even offer Java until my senior year when I was no longer able to take it. You must be compSci They got all the cool tech classes. I got COBOL.

Thanks, Nick. I appreciate your taking the time to respond.
What I am building needs access to real-time data so I am using an applet to achieve this.
Are you saying that I can have my applet send a request to a JSP/Servlet and allow the servlet to carry out all my DB actions? This was the direction we were toying with, but have never heard of anyone doing it (within our group).
Or are you saying to get rid of the applet all together and just use JSP for the presentation. Somehow, I have to provide real-time data.
Thanks again!

Could you please increase the "granularity"? I am new to the issues involved in writing applets and have no idea how to get an applet to access a remote database. I am using MS Access by the way.
My applet is running on Tomcat and the DB is just an mdb file.
I hate to ask, but I need a step by step explanation on how to resolve this. If there a resource you can point me to, please let me know.
Thanks in advance!

Hi all,
This is my first post so I apologize if a break any protocols.
I am creating an applet that has a table of data built from a database. One of the columns has buttons embedded in each cell so you can perform an action on the row of your choice. This data is then inserted into a row in a table.
The problem I first encouontered was when I launched the applet, it gave an exception saying that access was denied. Once I looked into it, I found one solution that involved setting up a policy file on the local machine. This works great locally.
Now, my real problem is that when I access this applet form another browser on another manchine, the applet is looking for the local database and policy file.
How do I tell the applet to point the remote database and allow a user to perform actions on the rows in a table where the results are posted to the appropriate table?
Thanks in advance for your help!
