  Knowing what little I know about JAVA, I know you can
using sockets and the like, but I was wondering if there
was a high-level set of methods that are in latest API to
support communication between to JAVA apps...one on
the server and the other on the client?

thanks

Yes, you can implement push technology.  In fact, one of the biggest "push" technology companies is based on Java.  Have a look at www.marimba.com, and download the Castanet tuner.  Each channel that it can receive is actually a Java program.  Read the documentation online for instructions on writing a Castanet-aware program.  Even better, use Bongo, their Java IDE, which makes creating Castanet programs much easier.

As for the other part of your question, there is a big change in Java API1.1 that supports various forms of inter-process communications, including JDBC and RMI.  Given the restricted environment Applets have to work in, though, it isn't yet clear how useful it will be for pushing information.  The HTTP method of Server Push may be easier to deal with, depending on how complicated you want to be.

Overall, though, I recommend you have a look at Castanet.
