Hi All,
I am making an Online exam system using applets. but the trouble is that JDBC ODBC Bridge does not seem to work with Browser applets. so if anyone can tell me whats the way around it i will be much obliged.
Thanx in advance,

Applets have security restrictions as you problably know(the famous sandbox concept), and if you�re trying to reach a DB that is not in the host that it came from you�re not gonna be able to do it, a commom manner to go around this is making a servlet to receive informations from your applet and then let the servlet go throught the DB and return the information to your applet.
Anyway take a look at:
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/applet/overview/security.html
there you�ll find more information about what applet�s can and can�t do.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
