I saw an earlier question that asked whether one could create a server file and/or open for write. The answer (which I gave up some points for) did not answer the real question. Anyway, I would like to create and subsequently open for write a text file on the server from the Java client. I know how to open up a file for read, but am not sure I can write. I know I can do this with a CGI program, but am curious if I can accomplish this with Java. I am not yet familiar with the 1.1 additions, so am hoping this is possible.

It is possible in 1.1 using the RMI (remote method invocation), or
servlets running in a server-side java environment such as Jeeves.  You should check out and download 1.1 from www.javasoft.com.  Right now, you could have an applet connect to a CGI or server daemon which does what you want...but if the server is running Jeeves, you could use total JAVA to accomplish what you ask.

A servlet is basically a server-side on demand applet :)

Jeeves is a Java based HTTP daemon.

RMI allows remote applets to call methods on other java applets across network connections !!! Pretty phat, if you ask me.

Note:  applet security prevents the applets from writing files, and connecting sockets to machines other than the machine they were downloaded from.

See java security at JavaSoft...

Good luck.
