Applet to Servlet Communication

Hi to all ,

I had a Applet which needs to read some data from the database.
The data is read from the database via a Servlet .The requisite data
is there in the Value Objects wrapped inside an ArrayList .
The servlet makes a ObjectOutputStream object passing
response.getOutputStream() as the argument & writes the ArrayList obj
in the output stream .

In the applet , i make a URL Connection obj named servletconnection. which points to that servlet .
Upto this point everything goes fine & the connection is established .
Now i make a ObjectInputStream obj & passes the arg as servletconnection.getInputStream().
When i prints the available size it shows as 0.
Am i not pointing to the correct stream .

Pls. help me out .

Bye n Tanks in Advance ,

For applet-servlet communication the jakarta httpclient api is always interesting.
