I am attempting access to an oracle database via an Applet. when I try it tells me "Can't connect to host." I am curious, is this allowed? To access the DB server on a box other then the Web Server with an Applet? I know there are rules with Applets and I hope that is not my problem...and if is, one of your guys will have a work around.
This is allowed, but you'll have to give your applet permissions (search the JDBC forum for 'sign applet') to access the database. OR you can put the jdbc code in a servlet or bean. Jamie

Jamie, Thanks and I read all of the post that came up with 'signed applet' search yet all of them say exactly what you are saying. "Either sign it or write a servlet" Ok I will do my homework and attempt a servlet but anyhelp or walkthrough, even a small tutorial to get me started would be great. I just began learning Java so now diving into Servlets should be fun. Anyway thanks again!
