Is there a way to allow an Applet to call a Servlet which is not on the same server as the Applet by modifying some policy files? (or otherwise)

Thanks in advance,

Basic applets are allowed to connect only to their originating host. It is possible to allow an Applet to call a Servlet on another machine by making changes to the policy file. The policy file java.policy would look like this:

grant {
  permission "", "accept, connect, listen, resolve";

You will specify this policy file in the Java appletviewer command.
appletviewer Applet.html

The limitation with this approach is obvious. It can only be used in conjuction with the appletviewer command. So, better options will be Digital Signatures and Certificates.

I will try to post some sample programs soon.

Good luck!
