I created an applet that is supposed to have a feature that can save data
and hopefully send that data to the server for persistence (database or whatever) and to also retrieve data from the server
and reflect the data on the applet canvas.
Im thinking of submitting the data thru a POST by using AJAX approach.
is this possible? Can i manipulate javascript function calls and elements from inside my applet?
I would lilke my applet to be able to talk to any kind of server script not just servlet by just using xmlhttprequest.
if this is a bad idea, can someone recommend another way to accomplish the goal?
