Can an Applet can work without passing any parameters?
like for example i need to play a video file in the applet
then in my source code i got something like:

String file = getParameters("File");

Then the applet i got:

<param name = "File" value = "abc.mpg">

But can i not have the param then in the source I have:

String file = "abc.mpg"

Then the applet no param?

because the file to be played will most be dynamically retrieved from a database. don't mind it but can i juz ask how can i stop experts-exchange from sending me email? i can't seem to stop it, hence, i've blocked it.
