Applet direcrtly accessing a database.
Posted on 1999-12-19
In JDK1.1 it wasn't possible to give access to a database without using RMI, servlets or Socket based programming.
If I correctly interpret JDK1.2 security enhancements, one can give specific permissions in the policy file to enable the applet to connect and listen to any socket. Thus it should be possible to directly open a database connection from an Applet and fire queries to the database.
For Illustration, please help me in writing code for a JApplet in accessing an MSAccess database through JDBC-ODBC Bridge through one of its method which is called on the click of noe of its button.
