I know that an applet is not allowed to read or write files on the local system, but is it possible to write and read to/from a textfile on the same server it was downloaded from? I would need this to transfer parameters to and from the applet. I would really appreciate any help on this. Thanks Mike

hi I think you can read and write to files in the same server if it is in the same folder or sub-directory as that of the applet.Use the ordinary FileInputStram or you can use URL to hold the address of the file and then access it thru DataOutputStream. hope this helps bye Tanveer

Yeah, you should be able to do it like this:
or you can use a DataInputStream or whatever, as long as you open it with 'url.openStream()'.
