Let me guess: you also need it to support 1 million concurrent users, and you need it next Thursday by 7PM.
This is a pretty tall order, and it sounds to me like you really need to do some basic research before going much further. For example, all the Java code in a JSP runs on the server, while in an applet, it runs on the client; that means that of thetwo, only an applet can talk to a "foot switch" (which is presumably a piece of hardware on the client.) Likewise, JMF code can't run in a JSP! On the other hand, you can't do any of this in an applet without a solid understanding of the security issues involved.
