Is there any way to pass an array into an applet?

What do you mean exactly? Where would the array come from?

For Example I have a regular HTML page that I want to keep as HTML - it is a form I want to pass many valued into an applet from the form. Instead of doing many getParams, can I just create it as an array, and pass it in to an appet?

You could try passing a single parameter as a delimeted string, say a list of strings seperated by semicolons, then use java.util.StringTokenizer to extract the individual strings from your list.

hey Rob,
c after long , huh? i thought either my eyes r getting worse not to c u or u r becoming too fat to be seen
anyways, hope u 've some memories reflecting my name...
i don't exactly remember right now but somebody asked the same question on JSP forum i guess. he wanted to pass an array of String to the applet which he was getting in the JSP that had the applet embeded in it. i suggested the same thing to him as i don't know any simple/direct way of passing an array.
also if we can use JavaScript and Applet communication using JSObject then we can have JavaScript array passed to an applet method. can't we?
I agree. Here's the link:
