I have created a table for a database using mysql. I have a java applet and this applet performs its task by getting the start and end position using text box from the user and the remaining other details for the applet to run is to be obtained from mysql table. Is it possible for applets to retrieve the values from the table and work based on that information? how to do it? kindly give me some suggestions and some useful links..I am a newbie in JDBC.
Thanks.

Priya,
I think this question relates more to applet connections than JDBC so I'm moving it to our applets forum. If I am wrong, someone can move the thread back here to JDBC.

An applet is Java code like any other code, so whatever you can do in a desktop application or a web app, you can do in an applet.

BUT, applets are only allowed to connect to the server where they are hosted. So if the database is not located on the same machine as the web server that hosts the applet itself, this won't work. Unless the applet is signed, about which you can find more information at HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem
