It is not hard to access a database from within an applet,in fact, a lot of times people will use a servlet to accomplish this and I have done a project like this. The first thing that we need to know, however, is what kind of database are you trying to access? That will determine which driver that you are going to need.

Because of applet security, doesn't the database have to be on the same server that served the applet?
