I am building a applet that make some calculation and the results are displayed in a JTextField. Is it possible to use the calculation from the applet and have them displayed in another area of a web browser that is not part of the applet? What are some sugestions of ways to go about accomplishing this? I'm kind of new to java so I don't really know that much about applets. I would gratly appreciate any input from anyone who could get me going in the right direction or give me a few clues. Thanks

I guess what i would like to know is it possible for two applets to talk exchange data between them. Or would possibly java script be a better solution to the problem.

Thanks Pardner! Hope to see you 'round the Ranch!
Also, please don't post the same question in multiple forums. It just complicates a conversation. Let's continue this conversation back in the Applets forum...
