Accessing EJB from an applet.

Does anyone have a good example of using EJB in an applet to access an application server over the internet?  I need it so that communication can go on through any firewall.  Do I need to do an HTTP-tunneling type solution?  Can this be done with EJB?  Is there something better?  I need to support transactions.  I am actually trying to access a database reliably from Web Start, but I figure it is about the same issue as accessing it from an applet.

I figure sockets are a pain and servlets will give me issues with transactions.

To use the EJB from an Applet behind the firwall, there is one big problem: The firewall must be able to handle CORBA 3.0.

I use this configuration:

Brower --- >  Firewall  -- >  ApplicationServer ---> Database
UI----------------------------->  EJB ----------------------> Content

It's important to deploy the EJB to the ApplicationServer behind !! the Firewall. So the EJB-Communication is not relevant to the firewall.

If you are using an ApplicationServer, you can also use Servlets and JSPs and don't need Applets.
