O'Reilly's Java Servlet Programming by Jason Hunter : Chapter 10 Applet-Server Communication ----- the DaytimeServlet example. -----------------
I have implemented the example code where the applet is to get the date/time from the servlet via 4 different types of request mechanisms (I omitted the 5th using RMI). The code is compiled and the applet does show the gui. None of the times are showing up. I am really concerned about the "connection refused" error. The applet is supposed to be able to connect to its server, right? What is the trick?
I get the following error messages (abbrev of all messages seen in the Java console)======= 1)DaytimeApplet.getDateUsingHttpText error=> java.io.FileNotFoundException: localhost:80//servlets/DaytimeServlet
2)DaytimeApplet.getDateUsingHttpObject error=>
java.io.FileNotFoundException: localhost:80//servlets/DaytimeServlet?format=object
3)DaytimeApplet.getDateUsingSocketText error=>
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
4)DaytimeApplet.getDateUsingSocketObject error=>
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

The local host is both the server and the client.
Windows NT 4.0
SDK1.2.2
JSWDK1.0.1
Apache JServ 1.1.2
Apache Web Server 1.3.11
Internet Explorer 5.00
http://localhost/daytime.html
C:\Java\Apache Group\Apache\htdocs\DaytimeApplet.class
C:\Java\Apache Group\Apache\htdocs\HttpMessage.class
C:\Java\Apache Group\Apache\htdocs\daytime.html
C:\Java\Apache JServ1.1.2\servlets\DaemonHttpServlet.class
C:\Java\Apache JServ1.1.2\servlets\Daemon.class
Thanks in advance for your help. Irene

Check out www.javaranch.com/common.html - look for HTTP and ObjectServlet
