Passing data between applets and servlet is quite easy. I've implemented a solution passing data as serialized objects using ObjectOutputStream and ObjectInputStream.
In the applet...
URL url = new URL("servlet/myServlet");
Integer data = new Integer(1);
Serializable objs = data;
URLConnection con = url.openConnection();
con.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
ObjectOutputStream out = new ObjectOutputStream(con.getOutputStream());

In the servlet....
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse resp) throws ServletException, IOException {
ObjectInputStream in = new ObjectInputStream(req.getInputStream());
Integer myData = (Integer)in.readObject();
And of course you can send data the other way.
Hope this helps.
