Hi,

The problem is that I'm developing some graphical reports with (java AWT-Swing) so I'm using applets.

The question: is there any way to use JavaBeans with applets. The thing is that I need to access my database throw an Applet. The code is down below (no errors...no results... and there is nothing in logs either).

The thier arrangment is :    Web browser<--> Apache <--> Tomcat <--> PostgreSQL

Any ideas... ? Any solutions... ? I'm open to sugestions even if I have to throw to the waste basket my applets and starting to use some servlets or something like that.

*************************************************
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.Applet;
import Biblioteca.ConexionBean;

public class Prueba extends Applet {
  public void init() {
    ConexionBean base;
    base = new ConexionBean();
    String p_cveproyecto = getParameter("p_cveproyecto");
    String sql = "";

    add(new Label("Clave del proyecto"));
    add(new Label(base.Prueba(p_cveproyecto), Label.RIGHT));
  }
}

Thanks in advance!

What you need to do is create a ObjectOutputStream/ObjectInputStream from your servlet to your applet.  (Client - Server architecture).  

You servlet must access the database and construct a 'DataObject'.  I am currently working on an applet that gets dataobjects in an arraylist via the OOS/OIS then performs a method to construct the tree from the arraylist.

If you're looking for a direct database connection from your applet to the database,  you would require a signed servlet.  To sign a servlet you need to get a certificate from Verisign or something along those lines.  

I suggest you revise your reporting function to use an arraylist of dataobjects instead of a direct data connection.   Have the servlet perform the data connections and SQL queries and fill arraylist(s) with dataobjects constructed from SQL queries.  Then send those arraylists of ObjectOutputStream via the servlet.
