I would like to know how to use getApplet().  I am trying to retrieve the information from an object on one applet and display it on another applet.  The applets are also on separate HTML pages (if that matters).  I am not sure if getApplet() is the right way to go, but that seems to be the direction that some people have told me to go.  If there is another solution, I would appreciate it if you could let me know.  Some code examples would be beneficial also.  Thanks in advance.

If the code is on diferent pages, you will have to use either CORBA or RMI, and override the STOP method for the applet(s) that will go out of context (be paged out) to insure that they remain running while in background.

You might  also need to associate them to a frame if they don't implement runnable.

For information on CORBA see:

http://www.acl.lanl.gov/CORBA/

you'll find links to evrything you need, including tutorials, there.

RMI is currently beeing developed by SUN and is still somewhat inmature, you can obtain it at :

http://splash.javasoft.com/pages/intro.html

and you can read its docs at:

http://www.crg.cs.nott.ac.uk/~cmg/SRP/jdk1.1-docs/guide/rmi/index.html

Additional documentation is still lacking since the language specs are still evolving.

All in all I would suggest you use CORBA at this stage, although RMI looks like it will eventualy be the most robust of both technologies, it is still to inmature to be used for production at this stage.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Just found a fairly good article on using RMI at:
