audio recording through web application

I need to write a program that allows users to record audio through a web interface, then stores it on a server.



I got started in Java making an applet but I'm learning that recording audio through an applet is problematic/notpossible.

Is that correct?

If so what languages handle this kind of thing best? Specifically for the web interface.

I basically need to take in these audio recordings through the web app and then store them.

Not really. At time of writing (afaik) all applets need to be signed to run, irrespective of what they want to do. Once it's signed, you can do anything an application can, including recording audio
