Perhaps this is a dumb question as I've never done anything with swing yet. BUT, if I have the swing .jar files that are installed with websphere and I have database servlet that starts from and then displays its results in html, Why can't I use swing to spice this up a little? I have read the other posts but I still don't see why Thanks !!
servlets write html to your browser. html has nothing to do with swing. html is not java. if you want to put swing on a web page, you have to use applets. applets have nothing to do with servlets, so you can use any web server to serve applets.

Thanks John, and I guess I should read up on it 1st but thats the area I'm not clear about with swing. OK my servlet does produce normal html and within this html I have one those applet scrollers with info about the servlet and some links. Its all just displaying on the browswer?? It seems like I could be able to work swing in there somehow? and how did I get to be a ranch hand? Is that a numer of posts thing?
