What is the best approach for populating an applet with a dynamically generated list of items (from a database) for a jcombobox?
I have set up http tunneling that allows me to send and retrieve objects to a servlet. I do not want to have direct database calls from the applet and think the RMI serverside overhead is prohibitive as there will be many such tasks.
I am currently thinking that the applet would run a process at init that would request the object from the servlet and then create the jcombobox. Is there a better way?
thanks for your advice.
