I have figured out how to do Servlet to Applect and Applet to Servlet communication, but so far can only get it to read what is on the Servlet screen. Is there any way to have the applet read variables or something other than the servlet browser window? The reason I am asking is because people will cheat if the information is posted on the screen. With the servlet to applet communication I will have to have a servlet open for every game, which I was planning to have several games going at the same time...is there a better way of doing this, since wouldn't this idea bog down the server. Any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated.
