Appletee, Servletee kind of newbie question!

Hi everyone,

I am having real problems working out whats going on w/ my applet. I want to
be able to send an object from an applet to a servlet, here is the code for
the listener method causing the trouble:

private void addClientListener(java.awt.event.MouseEvent evt) {

System.out.println("Got this far, addClientListener.");
try {
URL fileURL = new URL(getDocumentBase(),
URLConnection conn = fileURL.openConnection();


conn.setRequestProperty("addClient", "true");

ObjectOutputStream out = new ObjectOutputStream(new



} catch( Exception exc ) {
I apologise if my usage of setRequestProperty is incorrect, i need to pass
several different objects to servlet and thought that by using this method
of URLConnection, i could evaluate this at servlet and handle each case
seperately. If there is a better way i would love to know how!

Here is the java console output, it is saying that i need to set doOutput =
true, well i am aren't I?

Thankyou in advance for any direction you can give me!!
