Hi
How could I perform a post request(and redirect) to an action page from an applet?
I have tried the following:

The above doesn't seem to work properly, coz it is not "redirect" to the action page.
Please comment.
Cheers

If u can use html file how about using is as follows:

getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL(getCodeBase(),"/help/GettingStarted.html"),"_self");

Hi Rakesh
I have tried that as a GET request, but I want it to be a POST request instead.
Any idea?

Hi All
Have no luck so far. I'm thinking of using Javascript to access the variable in the applet instead rite now.
I have tried something like this:

where getData() is a static method in the applet which returns a String object. However it's not working as well... please help!
