This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
There is an example in my Servlets and JSP book using some classes that Paul Weaton wrote. That com.javaranch library is somewhere on JavaRanch but I don't remember how to get to it. If you will drop me a line, I can send you the code from that chapter. email@example.com
You can find the Javaranch Common Classes info here Dave.

Alright. Cool and thanks. Next Question: Essentially what I want to do is stream a large amount of data from the servlet to the applet. What I need to do is send this data in blocks. For example, I have an array of 1000 objects (all serializable) and I want to send them to the applet in blocks of 100....all within the same request. What are the issues here? Can I send more than one block (array of objects) via the ObjectOutputStream.writeObject() method without closing the output stream? I also noted that the code you pointed me to is using GZIPInputStream. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this? Thanks again. -Jeff
