Retrieving data from remote server in an applet.
Posted on 2004-09-22
I am new to java programming, and I want to make sure I am going in the right direction before spending time on this project.
I have to upload an applet onto a server that I have no control over.
* No way to change this
That applet needs to connect to a remote server (which I do have control over) and retrieve data from a MSSQL Server database on it.
I was thinking about putting a servlet on the db server that connects to the database and then connecting to that servlet from the applet.
Am I going in the right direction, or is there a better way to do this?
