Is it possible to create and update files on the server without use of CGI or Cookies? Just the applet writing files to the server

John Zukowski

Short answer is no. Longer answer is yes, you can do it without using CGI or cookies but you must have some process on the server listening to do this. There is no support for this just using a web server.

As far as HTTP PUT goes, that doesn't write to a file, only a waiting stream for the request.
