java applet with database

java applet with database

java applet with database

I have had this problem several time. I want to make a java applet that uses a database, say oracle. The oracle database is on a server, say computer C. The java source(that accesses the database) and html resides on a computer, say computer B. The viewer of the end product is on a 3rd computer, say computer A. When this is the case, computer A can not view any of the data I believe because java applets do not let you open aditional ports on other machines. If I view the applet using a web browser directly from computer B everything works fine. Is there any way around this?

RE: java applet with database

I would suggest you go to http://java.sun.com

I think that what you want to look for is help on servlets, these can be called from Computer C and run from Computer B to collect data from Computer A and relay it back to Computer C.

I think that this is what you want.
