HELP! Whats wrong with this?

The following code calls an applet & sends a hashtable to the applet.
This will not work - it seems as if the applet never gets called. However, no exceptions/errors are raised!
The code works if I create hastable & only add one hash pair to it - does this mean that there is a limit on the size that can be sent to the applet?

ObjectOutputStream output = new ObjectOutputStream(m_httpResponse.getOutputStream());
output.writeBytes("<APPLET CODE='DavesApplet.class' ARCHIVE='DDavesApplet.jar' WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0 CODEBASE='/BEAT/applet/'>");

Let me get this straight - you are writing both a Hashtable object (binary) and the HTML code for an APPLET tag (text) to the response? What are you trying to do?

Thanks for your replies William,
I have solved the problem!
What I was trying to do was pass the hashtable from the Servlet to the applet.
I agree. Here's the link:
