Javascript, Applets, and Parameter Passing

I want to call a method in a applet that merely reprints the applet with a different value than what was initially printed to the applet. The method will accept a string and print that to the applet. I was wondering how to pass a string from a javascript to the applet and re-print the applet with that string. Could someone please answer this? Thanks.

The solution to calling from JavaScript to Java is called "LiveConect", and some info about it can be found here.

I don't understand what you mean by "(re-)print the applet".

I was looking to communicate between javascript on a webpage and an applet on the same page. I had to close the browser and re-open the page before it worked. What I meant by re-paint was how to call the paint method again for the applet since I had code in there that I wanted to trigger using a javascript method. It works fine now anyway. The re-opening of the page seems to resolve that problem. Thanks for the response.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
