Javascript method reinitialising applet

I have an applet inside a jsf page and I access its methods through javaScript.
when I try to call a method using a button inside the applet it works fine, but when I try to call the method through a javaScript it runs the code but reinitializes the applet, so I loose my data. The javascript method is wrapping the applet method scan() to be able to access the scanner.

How can I prevent the javascript from reinitilizing the applet?

public void javaScriptScan() {
AccessController.doPrivileged(new PrivilegedAction<Void>() {
public Void run() {
return null;

Sorry, the problem was not related to the applet, but to the jsf page containing the applet.
Problem solved
I agree. Here's the link:
