Hi All,,
I dont know where to post this query.Since it is more related to Servlets so I am posting it in this forum.
My question is :
How does an Applet communicates with Servlet.
Thanks in advance.

First the servlet to which you want to send parameters should be on the same server where applet is present.
Coming to passing parameters to the servlet , you can do this in two ways
i) Construct url manually. In this approach you should take care of parameter encoding.This can be tricky.
for eg:
to invoke DetailsServlet with parameters name and age
use DetailsServlet?name=abc&age=22
ii)Make use of URLEncoder and URLDecoder classes.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
