I have a problem.
I need an applet where my visitors on my web page will be able to draw something (ex. signature) and then after he will press SUBMIT I will recive his drawing as a picture back to my server.
Those drawings will be saved as picture files on my server.

Can this be done???

 Yes it can. The only thing you have to do is to get the bytes of the image/picture, open a connection to the server and send the bytes there. Then the server can reconstruct the image from the bytes and save it into a file.

 If you already have the image constructed then just send it to the server. Then read the bytes and reconstruct the image on the server side.

  You might want to look here for some libraries that help create images: http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?thread=336072&forum=31&message=1377259
