Perhaps. What happens when you try it using JDK? Do you get an error message? What does it say?

An applet can only communicate with the host from which it is loaded. Hence it cannot access the System DSN on your machine. I dont know about the J-Developer kit. However if u are using jdk then u will have to modify the java policy file to grant access, then it will work using appletviewer, but not on your browser. to grant access via browser u have to sign the applet or use pure java drivers which can be sent to the client machine via jar files.
Hope this helps.
I agree. Here's the link:
