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.
If this is the meaning of your question, post an comment please, than I can send you an ORACLE-specific example.
