Subject Re: GET request instead of POST
Date Mon, 02 Jan 2006 15:02:11 GMT
Putting any logic in applets seems to me an invitation to resource 
permission errors..more specifically..
Why would you elect to code an applet when there are are a number of tag 
libraries available for jsp pages to select from..
is/are there specific reason(s) why are you using applet(s) instead of JSP 
That said..Do you know for sure this issue is not a permissions problem with 
your applet ?
