Bai I'm actually surprized you didnt get a security exception... as Mark 
said applets run in the browser... client side.
The last time I looked at Applets (long long time ago), they dont need any 
special security if you talk to the delivery server...
Remember that... if you want to talk to any other server... you into 
security issues.
Things like the script coming from one machine and the applet from another, 
will also catch you...

I think they horrible things... if this is a new project, have a look at 
GWT... or think about a normal web page... if you can.
Will save you some pain....

The most powerful application server on earth.
The only real POJO Application Server.
