If I want to use JSP in a web-application project that uses Multimedia (Videos & Audios) that are stored in a database, can I do this without using an applet on the client side? and how? in other words, can the Interface be an html file? if I must use an applet, what is the role that could be played by JSP to get its advantages in this case? Note : This is an urgent question! Thanks for all, Jimi.

If you can write a prototype HTML file that uses the multimedia resources, then you can write a JSP that will generate the correct HTML. Remember, a JSP can only generate a single HTML page, The browser will request images, sounds, etc etc according to the links on that page. To serve up those images etc from the database you can use a servlet, not a JSP. JSPpages assume text output, not binary like an image. Bill
