This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
In response to my earlier question regarding opening up a socket connection from a web browser, I am thinking of 2 possible alternatives to calling the java function directly from an ASP page: 1. Call the java function from a JSP page 2. Create an applet that will perform the message processing (i.e. opening up a connection to the host, sending the message across this connection and reading back the response) From reading the messages on this forum, I think perhaps the java applet might not be a good idea as I will run into the same restrictions as I have when calling the java function directly from ASP. Right? What then of JSP? Are the security restrictions removed when we declare: Socket socket = new Socket(ADDRESS, PORT) inside a JSP page? Thanks again, Sean
