Presently I have a system that uses jsps/servlets to generate HTML forms to gather information than spawns 2 new browser windows that connect to servlets that return PDFs based on the information gathered in the form.
I am trying to move to an applet for parameter collection but am unsure how to proceed. I have to maintain security and don't want username or passwords passed in URL rewriting. Would the new servlets be able to keep the same session as the JSP serving (incorrect terminology?) the applet? Would direct connections to the servlet be the best way? How do I let the servlet know that the data obtained from the applet is to be used in the 2 new windows?
