I have made a java applet game and was thinking of adding a high score list to it. I was thinking what the proper way would be to do it. If my game was a regular java application I would simply use a XML file or a text file stored on the local file system. But, my game is on my website so I have to use a different approach. Would it be possible to store a text file in the JAR file which I could use to store high scores? Or should the file be stored in some file repository online? Would my game have permission to write to that file then?
