You can read Note:125647.1 from Metalink, I hope it will help you:

How to Send Email in Web Deployed Forms

This note describes how to send email from a Form running via a  internet browser. You cannot use MS Exchange in the Web Environment because of OLE limitations in Web Forms; this article describes  an alternative.

Scope and Applications
This article is appropriate for all developers and support analysts. It applies to 3-tier architecture only and works for all versions of  Forms Server that have Web Functionality.

How to Send Email in Web Deployed Forms
Use WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT to call a URL that provides email capability  from your browser. An example of this is clicking on an email contact  such as a "mailto:emailaddress" link, and bringing up a new mail message  from the browser.

Example
Create a button on a new canvas.
Add a WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger that contains the following code:   Web.show_document('mailto:emailid','_blank');
Now run the form from a browser. When you click on the button, a new instance of your browser is invoked. This initiates a new Mail message dialog. From the screen, you can use your internet mail as normal,  adding attachments if necessary.

thanks henka but kindly clear my doubts:

u wrote
"Example

when u write "Now run the form from a browser" do u mean that run form in applet cause i wd b running an applet.
what i have understood is this this that pressing the button in applet wd open an email programme.
also consider that i have to email the information the user submiited in the form,so can the form b attached in mail
or there exists sum alternative option where data can be mailed more efficiently.


thanks again

idd2262,
  you can read baonguyen1 comment, there is all you need there.

In client/server you can use OLE object - see "Adding an OLE object to your application" in the Forms on-line help.
In Web you can use WebUtil - http://otn.oracle.com/products/forms/htdocs/webutil/webutil.htm
or this method using Java http://otn.oracle.com/products/forms/pdf/ClientSideOLE.pdf
