How can i implement a "global" highscore list in a java applet? i want the highscore list to reside on the server and in some way the applet should communicate with the server. Can i implement this using cgi? someone who can help me?

Thanks!

You could use a servlet, or an RMI server...

have a look here http://jyderne.adsl.dk/mikkel/java/WebTris.html where they have the source for a tetris clone with a high score server

I personally would use an RMI server which the applet connects to and calls functions on it...

You can have a look at an RMI tutorial here:

Good Luck!!

Well, this only works if you set up the server yourself. I doubt there are Internet Service Providers offering RMI for their customers. Something like cgi, asp or php might be more realistic. Unless you are lucky enough to have your own server. hehe
