Does anyone know how to send a int or long value from an applet to a servlet as header information? I know there is a method getIntHeader() but how do you send things on the client side that are accessable by it?
Thanks for you help.

I thought I might have known a way to do that, but the code is in the hands of a previous employer and I can't find anything. I do know that the Java environment is supplying headers itself -- which turned out to be very useful, since one of the headers sent silently is the cookie that identifies the user session.
Headers are intended for use by the client and server containers, and I could see Sun actually forbidding user-defined headers to prevent "spoofed" client info. Is a header really what you need, or could it be done via a URI parameter?
