Hi again. After one week I am still trying to set up an HTTP URLConnection to the applet and "tunnel" thru to Tomcat. I have researched several sites and books, using Karl Moss's "Java Servlet Developer's Guide" as a principle source of examples. I have even paid a big company to help out only to be told they do not support Apache/Tomcat. I have not been able to establish reliable sessions. My Apache seems to be collaborating well with Tomcat , http://MyServerName/com/ServletName will retrieve data from db-server and display on browser. Works find like that. However, when I try to "tunnel", that's when I get these errors from the JAVA console :
humanum errare est.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
