I have an applet that I need to get information from.  I dont really want to write a new server for it but instead use IIS and just make http request or http post.  Can that be done in an applet?.

I would like to post some data to the server depending on user request and have the IIS server return back the data so I can display the data.

Thanks

You should use the
java.net.URL, java.net.HttpURLConnection
classes to communicate from the
applet to the server.
But be ware: An applet can only establish connections with the server it was downloaded from, otherwise you have to sign the applet.
