    Default applets vs jsp pages security

    hi there,

    i have an application that writes its results to a database, and now i need to build a web interface that clients can log into to read some results from the data base,,

    i have done some reading and noted that it can be done in an applet ( its a mysql database )... which seems like the easiest solution.. but i was wondering if this is as secure as using jsp pages ...

    the basic idea is that they will enter a
    username;
    password;

    which is checked against records in the data base and if successful are redirected to a summary page where they can look at the results...

    any commentary or direction to further reading would be greatly appreciated..

    An Applet would not function through a proxy, for one, for two, you would have to open the DB to the public, leaving it available for "crack" attempts, and other "little" things like that.

    Use servlets/jsp or even CGI/PHP/whatever you want.
