Easiest way to store data on server that was collected in an applet?
Dear all, I am quite a n00b at Java applets and I was hoping for your advice at the very early stage of a project:
I plan to conduct an interactive survey with the help of an Java applet. Each participant will need to make several decisions based on what the applet displays. These decisions do then need to be stored on the server for later analysis (we are talking really low data volume, maybe 200 participants in total with maybe 50 decisions each)
Now, my question: in your opinioin, what is the easiest way to do this? I already researched some possiblities (RMI, mysql, direct socket) and was under the impression, that maybe mysql would be the easiest for me to figure out... would you agree?
Also, I had planned to realize this over a paid web hoster, such as Web Hosting | URLhost - would that work or is that totally naive of me to think they would let me place applets on their sites that can communicate with mysql on their servers?
Thanks a lot in advance!
