I have a applet and from the applet i want to transfer values ( which is stored in a array )to a database (oracle or access) or to some file and use it later. How do I do it ? Please help.
Thanks in advance,

Well, the database most likely resides on the server so there is a security issue here. Your applet will not be able to directly communicate with the database as that voilates the rules of applet security. To communicate with the database you will need to write a CGI or servlet which resides on the server side to handle input generated from the applet. The applet will send a POST or GET request to the CGI/servlet process the input received from the user.
I would recommend using a servlet using JDBC to do this.
