Creating HTML page from applet on the fly

Hi!
I want to create a new HTML page from my applet on the fly but I'm not exactly sure how to do it.
On this HTML page I want to have another applet which uses data from the other applet.
Is this possible ??? If it is, then how can I do it ???

Yours sincerely

What you are asking for is not impossible, but...  The problem is that applets are generally not permitted to write files of any kind (including HTML files).  In browsers that permit it (such as HotJava, you can choose to "trust" a signed applet and allow it to write files. In JDK 1.2, you may even be able to allocate a specific directory for applets to write to.  Of course, all of this is dependant on the browser.  Current browsers generally do not permit this.

On alternative is to have a server process, accessed via RMI, CORBA, or sockets, create the file for you on the server.

Once you have managed to create the new file, you can use the Applet.showDocument() method to invoke it.

You can have the new applet use data from the launching applet by passing the data as parameters in the <APPLET> statement.

You can construct in JAVA the HTML and call a JAVASCRIPT to create the HTML "on-the-fly". Look at my site
  http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Vista/1337
in the JAVASCRIPT-JAVA interaction How-to section for a
snippet. Of course that solution is Ok with Netscape or IE4
