I have a JSP that launches a java applet (calculator). I want the applet to return a value to my JSP page (without  creating a new session) when I click a button. Is there anyway to do this?

The only way I can think of would probably be to load a new URL (your JSP page) and pass the desired value as an HTTP parameter:

// Construct URL with the value you would like to pass on
java.lang.whatever value;
java.net.URL myURL = new URL("http://whatever.com/yourpage.jsp?yourparameter="+value);

// Get your Applet Context and load the jsp
java.applet.Appletcontext myContext = getAppletContext();
myContext.showDocument(myURL);

Your problem here is that your JSP code is evaluated on the server - the client receives "plain" HTML, so you cannot pass values from an applet to a JSP page directly.

Hope that helps,

Just do an HTTP POST via Java to another JSP/Servlet tht receives the info. See
