We have the following scenario.
From page 'A' we download an applet.Then we open page 'B' from 'A' through
Page 'B' downloads another applet - is it possible for this applet to invoke a method on the packaged applet from page 'A'.
If not,is there any other better way to achieve this?
Page 'B' is not modifiable .Page 'A' simply needs to download a 'listener' library on to the client machine,which can be called on/notified by the applet downloaded by page 'A'.

This article explains how this can be done. The first method it describes would not work, but the second and third should work.
I agree. Here's the link:
