Hi all! I am quite new, and not very experienced in programming at all. I am currently making a Tetris-clone, which you can try here: www.elitris.com Now to the problem. I have put up a MySQL database, and coded some PHP-pages. I had planned to use these PHP-pages from my applet, to be able to store highscores etc, but it's not working very well. I don't want to open up new browser windows, since then the user can see the whole adress, and abuse of the highscoresystem will be very common. I've tried to let my Applet connect to the php-pages via URL and stuff, but nothing seems to work very well. If you have any experience of Applets, and MySQL-databases, please don't hesitate to answer! I need all help I can get. I've never been in touch with PHP or MySQL before, so this is new ground for me. I have not been programming for a very long time neither, so please try to go easy with me Any help is appreciated! /Anton Westbergh

And AppletContext.showDocument() isn't an option, since it shows the whole URL to the user..
