    have a sample of this. Thanks in advance

    Sure, but I don´t have any code to provide to you. But you can always import
    the jdbc-driver specific classes to your Applet-code and connect to the database
    through it. Applet security prevents your applet from connecting to another
    host, than the one that provided the applet. You could of course make alterations
    to your browsers security/authentication, or make a Remote Method Invocation
    to another host, but the standard way is applet-host.

    java.sql.Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc://"+host+"/"+db,
    userName, passWord);
    java.sql.PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT custname, address
    FROM customers WHERE custid = ? ");
    ps.setInt(1, 45); // sets the value of custid
    java.sql.ResultSet rs = ps.executeQuery();
    if ( {
    System.out.println("Customer name: " + rs.getString(1));
    System.out.println("Address: " + rs.getString(2));
