How do I pass parameters from a JSP to an Applet?
I tried several variations of the following:
<jsp :plugin type="applet" code="Trans.class" codebase="." jreversion="1.2" width="529" height="342"
</jsp :plugin>
<jsp :params>
<jsp :param name="userId" value="10" />
</jsp :params>

Im not sure I understand your problem. You can use straight html.
<applet code="Trans.class" width="529" height="342">
<param name="userId" value="10">
Unless I just dont understand.

You need to nest the <jsp :params> inside the plugin tag. Judging from the code you posted, you're not.
See examples here:
To the other respondent, the reason for using the plugin tag instead of straight HTML is that the JSP container is supposed to write browser-specific HTML for you, saving you the effort of doing browser detection and generating different HTML for IE and Netscape.

I see. I have been avoiding the problem of different applet tags for each browser by using java 1 in my applets. I still use html 3.2 mostly also.
I agree. Here's the link:
