Hi there,
 
     I am interested in printing a report from my java applet with the current data. I know that JDK 1.02 does not support printing. So what I am planning to do is create a temporary html with the data dynamically and tell user to print the html file from browser. My question is how to create a temporary dynamic html from applet? Can somebody give me some clue or better solution?

As you know already, a Java applet can't print (under 1.02) nor will IE or Navigator properly print data displayed inside an applet.  They just don't know how to render the data and the applet can't render itself because the JDK doesn't support it.  You also can't have the applet send HTML to the browser since that violates the Java security model.  So, how can you do it?

This is what I have done.  Have the applet structure the HTML like you want it and send it back to a CGI program on the server.  The applet can then request the page back from the server and tell the browser to display it.  You can then have the server cgi program delete the temporary page after it's been displayed.  If this seems like a runaround, I agree, but these are the kind of tricks that must be played to work around the "sandbox" in Java.

Hi jhance,

    That sounds good. But I am pretty novice to CGI programming. Can U give some sample code or some pointers to books or sites, I would really appreciate.

Thanx
