Hi,
I want to know how can i transfer multiple values from applet to servlet.Am successful in transferring single value but don't know about multiple.Can i transfer array of string this way from applet?:

String ar[]={fname,uname};
URLConnection con = getServletConnection1();
OutputStream outstream = con.getOutputStream();
ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream(outstream);
oos.writeObject(ar);
oos.flush();
oos.close();

BUT HOW ABOUT in server side:

I have this over there:in servlet(This will definitely not work.This servlet code i made for accepting single string value)
What are the changes i should do in servlet code for accepting my string array from applet ?

InputStream in = request.getInputStream();
ObjectInputStream inputFromApplet = new ObjectInputStream(in);
String answer = (String) inputFromApplet.readObject();

If you can send a String that way, then you can send an array of Strings just the same way. Of course you would have to cast the result to a String array in your servlet...

will it be this in servlet?

String[] ar = (String[]) inputFromApplet.readObject();

If so,then how to read the values ar[0] for 1st value
ar[1] for next??
