Can an Applet directly post information to a JSP page rather than a Servlet? In other words, may I use an url.openConnection() where url is "../test.jsp" in the applet?

Yes it can. There's even a wonderful O'Reilly class that will help you with Applet-Servlet communication.

Take a look at http://www.servlets.com/resources/com.oreilly.servlet/HttpMessage.html.
