This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
We're pleased to have you here with us in the JSP forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
You *can* pass a collection into an applet from a JSP page... but you have to remember that the applet is running in the client's JVM inside their browser, while the JSP is running in the JVM on your server. So you can't pass the collection directly. If the collection is a collection of Strings (or a type easily represented by strings), you could just have code that builds the applet tag dynamically and inserts a param tag for every element in the collection. Then have the applet parse the param strings to build the collection again from the strings. If your collection is some other type, you'll need to look into some kind of distributed technology like RMI, and make the applet a RMI client. Then you can run a RMI server on your web server and pass the applet values through RMI.
