The problem is that the browser has a different session than the applet. The servlet stuff provides a solution, but only through deprecated methods that, at least in JRun, don't work reliably.
The solution is to have a singleton that contains a hashtable of data objects on your servlet side: make your own custom session stuff - it's pretty simple. The only difficult part is setting up a thread that kicks off every few minutes to delete old data.
